I cannot speak for the Quality of the app itself mainly because I have not been able to get it to work with my MSI TV@nywhere card. it does however work with my ATI AIW 9800 Pro with no problem at all and does have some great features that are not available in the ATI or MSI media center soft wares.
Another distressing thing is that both the
ChrisTV PVR lite and Chris TV online free installers appear to be infected with adware, both downloaded from their site in the last 24 hours.
it tries to install "Relevant Knowledge" Ad-ware.... Ad-Aware caught it and the Chris TV software installed as expected and runs just fine.
Im giving a 3/5 only because the installed has ad-ware in it..
Excellent app packed with features, just make sure you have ad aware running before you install, Avast did not catch the Ad-ware's attempt to install...

This software has the potential to be the best, but it's undermined by almost non-existent technical support from the developer, including for customers who paid for it. Though there are people who complain about it, serious bugs remain unresolved, without any sign of improvement in the future.
Test the Lite version, if you intend to purchase it. But don't expect to get it working or to receive support for getting it working again, if you change your OS, your tuner's drivers or your TV tuner altogether.
A rating of 1 star for poor support...

If you want to spend 60 US dollars for Chris TV Pro, that's Ok because it is a top quality product with more features than most will ever use. But on the other hand, either the KM Player or BS Player may meet your needs for a TV player as well as both being full featured multi-media centers. I can't speak for DScaler since it's not compatible with my tuner card. As for K!TV, it's obsolete.

Great application, obviously deserves 5/5, however I switched to DScaler and it fits my needs perfectly and it's open-source!

This program is good... but if you want all the feature you have to pay and it's quite expensive comparing to other apps of the same kind.
I'm not telling that the author "have to eat" as it is said on an other review but its attitude was bad.
As I previously said, the author used people to test its app and to translate it but its attitude was bad when it come to paid versions...
I'll stick to K!Tv wich is Open Source and does what I need. Furthermore K!Tv is being totally rewrited and the future version will be a blast ;)
Anyway this is a good program.. if you can afford it... (about 40€ or 50$ for the Pro version)

Uses very low CPU resources on a cheapy TV card. Was using K!TV which used around 60% CPU whereas this is only using 16%.

ArabianNight, you gave it a low mark because the programmer wants to eat ? Do you work during the day for free?
How about rating the quality of the software and its features?
This App has a good GUI , supports a wide range of tuner cards and most releases have been quite stable. The Software is superior to the default software shipped with most Tuner cards , that alone sets it apart, the price is a bit high(I can buy a tuner card for the same price), however the author does offer two other alternatives.
ChrisTV Standard 4.60 and ChrisTV Lite 4.60

I have an MSI 845PE MAX 2 and have seen my system spontaneously reboot many many times out of the blue whilst running the app.
I would take the risk and try it because its a great program.
