A PVR system for the PC desktop for TV, movies, photos and music

A review of NextPVR by Sven Sørensen

NextPVR is an excellent "Personal Video Recorder" which supports a long list of different video input types such as DVB-S, DVG-T, DVB-C and others. It may also be used to various TV input hardware and HDMI capture devices.

The user interface of NextPVR is probably best used on larger displays thanks to its sparse layout and big fonts. It provides access to a TV Guide for making recordings of programs and can convert them to popular video formats for the PC and portable devices like AVI files using DivX or XviD encoding.

As a TiVo-like solution for the PC, NextPVR supports most of the main PVR-inspired features like time-shifting, pausing live TV, DVB plugins, radio stations and the ability to record multiple signals simultaneously.

Apart from support for live television, NextPVR also supports other multimedia functions like playing music, videos and photographs directly from your PC hard drive (or other connected storage).

In terms of supported formats, NextPVR can handle MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.264, AC3, AAC and other common audio/video types. Programs may also be exported for viewing on portable devices like an iPod or cell phone.

Overall, NextPVR provides a wide array of features for providing a TiVo-like experience, but from your personal computer. For those living in an area with DVB signals and its corresponding capture devices, accessing TV from your PC couldn't be easier.
