    I have a TV card ("713x BDA Analog" chipset, if it means something to
    anyone). I use WinXP SP2

    I'm trying to operate either VirtualVCR, VirtualDUB or VLC in order to
    be able to watch TV, and record certain shows (by starting recording
    immediately or by scheduling). The bundled software - Cyberlink's
    PowerCinema is too heavy and error-prone.

    The problems are:

    in VirtualVCR I hear no sound - everything works great by there is no
    audio in the preview nor the recording.

    in VirtualDUB, while I don't activate the "audio preview", I can see
    the TV show correctly, but whenever I check the "audio preview", the
    video stream gets segmented, with no more than 15 fps.

    VLC is just not comfortable watching (I can't change channels and so

    Thank you in advance!

    I use VirtualDub with either of my two very different tuners (one
    built in my laptop, the other external, one without a hardware
    encoder, the other with), and for the most part it behaves well,
    although it has no scheduling function. I am not able to relate your
    problem to anything I've experienced myself, however, I do find it
    necessary to force Video > Preview (as opposed to Overlay) for one of
    my tuners.

    Another application I started to use recently, successfully, is KM
    Player. This also works with both of my tuners, though it took a bit
    of understanding of the capture options to configure it correctly. If
    scheduling is a high priority for you, you may want to look into GBPVR.

    I forgot to mention Media Player Classic. I can't get it to produce
    audio with my devices, but it has good flexibility and may work well
    with yours.
