Just our way of protecting your files while we test this new feature. You can play the select Library file by Double Clicking or Pressing enter.

Due to the on going projects of Viewers and Recorders, I added the ability to choose the application you would like use for recording.

Found an repaired an error in remote scheduling where it would schedule the job and not run WinTV. Added remote scheduling to PVR Scheduler.


CT PVR Scheduler is a full featured scheduler that's works in tandem with CT Scheduler which is included in this install package. CT PVR Scheduler allows manual TV program scheduling and management. Options for Daily and Weekly programming as been added. You can modify any program that has not run yet or that is set to run on daily or weekly schedule. All shows scheduled are still visible with the WinTV scheduler

Added Remote Scheduling capabilities. Schedule to your HTPC using any other pc on networked systems only. Will not work with windows 9x/Me computers and not sure about NT 3.5/4.0. Some other minor changes were made that should be seamless.

note: The account that's logged in on the local PC must have access rights to the computer you want to schedule a task to. Even to view the schedule list on a remote PC you need access rights.

You can now schedule a video program without a web program guide. Change the option setting on Allow Menu Start and you can schedule from scratch. New Options added to control the inputs a little better. You can define a default input source for recording. Added an Unattended mode, Disable Prompt to eliminate user input except when an error occurs, and a Do not Quit after scheduling.

CT Scheduler now handles the scheduling with out the need of Hauppauge's scheduling software. You have the ability to view your scheduled programs via a preview screen. View any conflicts in your recording schedule and delete them on the fly. This version will work together with a full scheduler that will be release by Nov 24th.

Enabled the TitanTV processing in Options. You can now save your Svideo/Component channel in Options along with the Channel Over setting. Channel Over will automatically change the channel entry box to Svideo/Component if that station channel is higher than the number you have entered. This will help when recording form digital or cable services.

Created an option area reachable thru start menu. You now have the capability of auto padding the start and end times. This option area will grow with new feature with-in the next few days. Placed a button next to your time zone description which allows you to run the window system time/date console.

Added spinner button by station to switch between a station or Svideo/Composite. This will allow you to associate a channel number with the Svideo/Composite. The system will save the last channel that is on the screen when you click on schedule button. This only matters if you use the PVR button in Gist as the Outlook button has a channel number already associated with it.

Fixed bad recording date depending on your timezone that resulted in a scheduled recording event with a next run time of never.

Now supports all time zones worldwide. Displays you time zone and current time. Added spinner button to change the time and locked out direct entry to limit errors. Added a shortcut to reassign TVPI file type back to hauppauge PVR applet.

Fixes: Program title description queries complete title minus illegal file characters. TV program start and ending time now acquires correct time.

Now supports Microsoft Outlook event association with sites that provide the ability to insert a TV show programming information into Outlook. Works with Gist.com and I think it does a better job than their PVR link.
Added the ability to change the TV program start and ending time.

Once you enter a channel number and schedule a show the program will log the channel number. This allow the program to automatically insert the channel number so input will not be required. You still have the option to change the channel number during another scheduling event.
