New TvR for TV tuner in Mediator

A new version of the TvR program by Robert Krajcarz is now available. This program enables control of any TV tuner PCI card working in the Elbox Mediator.

Hardware requirements:
Amiga with a Mediator PCI busboard
Any TV tuner PCI card working in Mediator
(Optional) SoundBlaster PCI128 sound card
(Optional) TV tuner remote control unit

TvR allows seeking radio/TV stations, composing a TV program list, tuning TV screen parameters (brightness, contrast, saturation), switching channels, changing TV window size (from 10% of the standard TV size to fullscreen), selecting video source (TV/CINCH/SVHS), switching between sound modes (mono, stereo) and controlling volume. In the fullscreen mode, TvR provides OSD (On Screen Display) for the performed functions. Stopping (freezing) TV frames and saving TV screenshots to the hard drive is also supported.

You can operate the program from the GUI, from the keyboard, or from the remote control unit, which is also supported.
