Yes, I am recording from a computer with a TV Tuner device. The device is a "Silicon Dust HD Home Run Dual Tuner". It has two tuners; record two shows at one time; record one watch another etc.
To the very best of MY knowledge I cannot locate a way to adjust the quality of the DVR-MS format at all.
There are other DVR recording softwares out there. I have studied them to a fairly lengthy degree and have not chose to proceed with them because of greater degrees of technicality.
Besides and additionally, Windows Media Center 7 has proven to be the very best all around DVR software across the internet.
I have not yet tried any other video file formats. I have to figure out first how to get them to play through Windows Media Center. I will experiment with that on 1/31/2013 and let you know. Same with You Tube.
This whole 'seam' issue is a very strange occurence. Does anyone feel that it is correctable?
I wish we could stir up someone who is doing the same thing that I am doing that could tell us if they have a like problem with like hardware. Know what I mean?
I think I have a file that I might be able to attach to this forum. It is a video file taken with a Canon A630 digital camera (more a still shot camera with a short video recorder option). It is a camera video recording of watching a TV recording playback via WMC7 on the HD TV. In other words I video recorded the TV screen. There is no color quality at all because of video trying to record video. However, the 'seams' do show up clearly.
The video will show the 'seams' but I don't know if actually seeing the 'seams' will get any of us any closer to further understanding the problem than what we already know about it from my posts. Let me know. How large of a file (MB's) can I attach to this forum?
