Your own personal Digital Video Recorder! Using the built-in hardware MPEG encoder, WinTV-PVR-350 recording data rates from 2.5Mbits/sec to 12Mbits/sec, so you decide how much hard disk space your videos will consume. A typical one hour TV show in DVD quality will take 1 to 2 Gigabytes of hard disk space.

After recording your videos to your PCs hard disk, you can play them back on your TV set with the WinTV-PVR-350's hardware MPEG decoder. The hardware MPEG decoder takes no system resources while playing videos, so your computer continues to run at full speed.

Technically speaking: WinTV-PVR-350 contains a highly integrated MPEG-1/2 hardware encoder and hardware MPEG-1/2 decoder. The hardware MPEG encoder is used to turn audio/video into MPEG streams. The encoded MPEG stream is sent over the PCI bus, where it is stored on the PCs hard disk and simultaneously decoded in software for display on the PC screen. WinTV-PVR-350 supports three DVD quality profiles: DVD extra long play, DVD long play and DVD standard play. In addition, there are record profiles for SVCD and VCD formats, plus a "raw" 12Mbit/sec MPEG-2 format. The on-board hardware MPEG-2 video decoder is used to decode MPEG video into analog audio/video for output to stereo audio and S-Video connectors.
