I have been recording with NextPVR and its predecessor GB-PVR for about 5 years. Some guy needs to read the Wiki.

Version 2.3.6 is the best yet, and works great with HDHomeRun Prime, and a lot of other tuners.

tc17...do you not understand what this is maybe? It is PVR software, doing essentially what your DVR box does, your DVR box DOWNLOADS updated channel listings just as this does....it doesnt auto scan your channels. This is actually amazing software, and anyone having trouble using it has not followed the instructions...its dirt simple even without following the instructions. WAY faster than all of the other PVR software I have tried.

You should have to take an IQ test before you are allowed to review on this site.

I have been using this now for 3+ Years as my FREE TIVO and not a complaint.

Using it with a Hauppage WinTV-PVR-150 and it's Flawless.

If you are one having issues, then I would suggest upgrading your Drivers or you simply do not have a card that can support this product.

This program looks nice, and something I wanted to work. But like others, I could never get it to work either. For example this is the first tv tuner software I have ever come across that isn't capable of auto scanning for tv channels. That is just lame. You have to download the list from some tv guide type websites.

And my tv card IS on their list.

I've been using GB-PVR for nearly two years now. Its a great app with great support. I'd rate it better than most commercial apps.

I'm not surprised the reviewers below failed to get their PCTV100 or WinTV Go-FM cards to work with GB-PVR. Neither of these cards are on supported capture card list. You need a decent card with hardware encoder like Hauppauge PVR150 etc or one of the ATSC or DVB cards.

It looks nice on presentation, but I couldn't get it to work. I mucked with it for 3 days and nothing. I have a Pinnacle PCTV100. I have other applications that work perfectly with my adapter, BUT...

I even tried to add my adapter manually and didn't work. I would like to use it, but seems to have a tight compatibility list..

I've also been using this program for over 18 months and have been truely impressed by how far its come. After a farily rough start the program has been rock solid and does exactely what it say it does REALLY WELL!
The program is VERY easy to setup and get working. This is especially true if you are using one of the cards from Hauppauge. It even supports the Hauppauge MVP player so you can have fully functional clients throughout the house.
I've tried MediaPortal and Sage products but they did not fully support the MVP and stability and active development (regular releases) is a problem for these two. MythTV is probably a better program overall, however the linux learning curve and lack of a really good MVP client is preventing me from trying it again.
Support is amazing with GBPVR. There's always active community watching the forums and sub (the program author) answers most question within a day . Typically, even sooner than that!!!! That's if someone else doesn't answer it fully before he can get to it.
OVERALL: An amazing program and community

I have Pinnacle MediaCenter 300i and can't get it to work. I ask the forum, but no answer.
I give it a 2 because it's free!
