Watching a Previously Recorded TV program
If you have setup for DVB capture as outlined in the section above, just start here to watch a previously recorded TV program. Use the following steps.
- In the main window choose File
→ Load files and select the desired media file to watch.
- Broadcast transport streams may consist of multiple programs that all run together on one channel (for example 9 - 1, 9 - 2, and 9 - 3 are all on channel 9). Therefore when you play the
recorded program back all of these programs will play simultaneously and that is a jumble. In order to select just the one you want, press Alt-1 in the main window to select Asset Program 1 (or "Alt-1...8" to select the desired asset program number) which removes all of the unrelated audio/video tracks except for the selected program. It also resets the session to match the media.
- Move timeline to where you would like to start watching.
- Be sure the Compositor window is up and you will see the pre-recorded program there. Use either the keyboard, a remote control that has been set up, or Android device for controls. To toggle between fullscreen or original size, press "f" in the Compositor window.
To watch on a large TV screen or monitor which you have connected, you will have to setup for Dual Screen Mode as explained in the next section. In addition, you can either use a Remote Control hardware device or special key setup for manipulating the playback.
