Version 4.50 brings you many new features and improvements :We are introducing a new major feature ChrisTV TimeShift.
TimeShift lets you freeze the live TV stream, giving you a break while is still recording.
By TimeShift recording you can fast-forward through commercials and even create your instant-replay on a live TV program.

ImageThere are 3 Timeshift Running Modes :
Using software DV Encoder ( with high CPU usage and large size for buffer file )
Using software MPEG Encoder ( only MPEG Intervideo Encoder 3 is supported for the moment )
Using hardware MPEG Encoder ( available only for TV Cards with MPEG Hardware Encoding Module )

Note : ChrisTV TimeShift feature works only under Windows XP (MCE) with SP1 or higher.
For software encoding TV Cards there is the option to mute the Preview live Sound while in TimeShift Mode
( in Program Settings-]ChrisTV Settings-]Mute Preview Sound while using TimeShift )You can customize the TimeShift Buffering Time duration between 1 and 300 minutes ( while in trial mode the maximum duration is fixed to 35 minutes ).For a better usage and easy control of ChrisTV TimeShift, you can use the following [a href=features.html#timeshift target=_blank]Keyboard Keys[/a] (Winamp like).
