The WinTV-PVR-500 MCE can record to your PC’s hard disk full screen video (full D1) from TV or an external A/V source, at data rates from 2.5M to 8Mbits/sec (Media Center supports 3 standard profiles). The encoded MPEG-2 program stream is sent over the PCI bus, where it is stored on the PCs hard disk. The video can also be played back to the PC screen while recording, so you can pause, rewind and fast forward live TV.
