a good program to watch TV

Question: a good program to watch TV


i want to buy win 8.1 (non pro) but dont want to pay additional 90 $ to buy wmc and pro pack cause it is too high price for a program.

wmc is good and perfect to watch tv via DVB-T and i'm looking something like that.

i dont know why MS did this job for a program that was free in win7 , that was a bad action.

if there is good program like wmc please tell

thanks for reply

Preferred Solution: a good program to watch TV

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was thinking of buying a usb freeview stick today since i do not need to install any additional cards to the pc, and would only need to connect a small ariel that comes with most. they are cheap (30-60 depending on whether you choose to buy the same item from the internet or high st/currys)-but are they any good? does anyone have any experience or can recommend one? Ive been told to avoid the hauppauge ones as they arent built for just the uk market, and so some features that you get with a standard freeview box (eg digital teletext) are not available. ive also been told to make sure to get one that is both analogue and digital compatible since some that only have digital compatibility may not receive a good reception in some areas of the uk. Looking on the back of most it seems that they are only usb 2 compatible. I thought i only had up to usb 1.1, but upon checking the device manager I have a 'usb enhanced host controller' which is supposedly usb 2? I have 4 usb ports together on this desktop pc but have no idea which one is/or if they are all usb 2. thanks for any info :)

Answer:freeview usb2 sticks to watch tv - any good?

Hi, if it says enhanced in Devices then yes all are USB2. I have the Freecom USB DTV and in my opinion it is brilliant - I get excellent picture and audio.It comes with its own tiny aerial, but I would recommend plugging your outdoor aerial into it for best results - I use a coax splitter in back of TV and a length of normal coax cable. click here

So as of late I've found out my house has hit 160gb in 8 days, and unfortunately we have a cap of 250 a month. So I was wondering if there are any programs out to that I can have on my computer running in the background that watch how much comes in and out of my computer. I'm not looking for speeds of my upload and download (I have Raindrop for that), I want to know exactly how much I've gone through in a certain amount of time. Thanks guys!

Answer:What's the best program to watch my bandwidth?

There is a Firefox addon called 'Net Usage Item' that can use various XML-based services on your ISP's network to extrapolate and display the data in your Firefox-based browser.

Otherwise, I would suggest bookmarking your ISP's reporting pages, or you will have to install something at the network level to watch the bandwidth usage, since you have used the pronoun 'we', I presume you're on a home network with other users and devices.

So whenever I try to watch a movie dvd and put it in the computer the DVD RW Drive box comes up and it only gives me two options. One option is to watch it on the POWER DVD 12 program or "Take no action". I have tried to watch it on Power DVD 12 program before and it gave me the option to upgrade it which I would have to pay money for to do that. And I want to figure out how to watch a movie on another computer program besides Power DVD 12. Preferably Windows Media Player.

Answer:I need to watch a movie on another DVD program

Hi: I have this version of PowerDVD 12 on my PC and it works just fine.  Doesn't ask to be upgraded in order to work... Rev.A (31 Mar 2016) This package provides the Cyberlink PowerDVD application in supported models that are running a supported operating system. You may want to unistall your version of the software, restart the PC and then install this version.

what program do i need to watch an svcd video from

Answer:Program to watch SVCD on

click here click hereSVCD stands for "Super VideoCD". A SVCD is very similiar to a VCD, it has the capacity to hold about 35-60 minutes on 74/80 min CDs of very good quality full-motion video along with up to 2 stereo audio tracks and also 4 selectable subtitles. A SVCD can be played on many standalone DVD Players and of course on all computers with a DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive with the help of a software based decoder / player. It is also possible to use menus and chapters, similiar to DVDs, on a SVCD and also simple photo album/slide shows with background audio. The quality of a SVCD is much better than a VCD, especially much more sharpen picture than a VCD because of the higher resolution. But the quality depends how many minutes you choose to store on a CD, less minutes/CD generally means higher quality.SVCDs can be played on- Many standalone DVD Players, check here for compability list- All CD-ROMa/DVD-ROMs can play SVCDs with a software DVD/SVCD-Player

Answer:How can i install any program to be able to watch a dvd on my pc now i have windows 10

The standard video program that comes with Windows 10 does not play DVDs. You will need to download a 3rd party player in order to play DVDs.
You can use the Windows Store and search for/download VLC. It does a great job and is constantly being improved/updated by the author, so you have ongoing support.
If you would rather have a desktop app, VLC for desktop is unsurpassed in features and usability. Visit the website to get it.
Best of all, it's a free solution.

Okay, so this started yesterday and by the looks of it for no reason. So yesterday I started to a YouTube video and my computer crashed. I thought it was odd but nothing more, because in the past, it did this before. So I turn my computer back on and continue surfing the web and I come across a different site with a video not from YouTube, I start watching and the same thing again. At first I thought maybe I needed to do some clean up so i did I fragmented and cleaned the registry, but it still happen again. So my next thought was that my computer was overheating so I checked the fan, which looked to be ok, and raised my laptop for better airflow, but still happened again. I don't think I'm because I can work on my computer for hours without any problem and this seems to still happen even if I just started up my computer. So now I think that my computer has a virus or some kind of malware, because this also happens when I try to started up Spybot -search and destroy and it will crash in the middle of an AVG anti-virus free scan.

Answer:What program are good to have on?

From the browser's settings menu or options, look for the add-ons section to disable or tweak some or remove them completely. Do you have a particular issue with your computer? Ccleaner is mainly use for clearing your temp. files and could also be helpful in removing programs, no other. If you want to disable startup programs which are not needed during booting, you can try MS autoruns or startup lite by Malwarebytes.

I was wondering if such a program exists and if so, can someone recommend one? I'm looking to clean up some files on my registry. Is that safe? I've already used some programs like Spybot, Ad-aware, Norton and Trojan Remover. But, it seems I still have somewhat of a lot of programs still running in my registry which could possibly be slowing my computer. Any recommendations?

Answer:Looking for a good program

Hi Chadwick0211,

Registry cleaners are not recommended. When you say there appear to be programs running in your computer and slowing it down, how do you know this? What programs have highlighted them?

The reason I ask is that programs that run in the registry are either necessary system files, optional programs which you have installed or malicious files which have sneaked in. You can damage the registry very easily if you don't know what you are doing.

There are safer things to do with the second group, like stopping them running on startup, and experts here can help you with the last group. We just need to know a bit more about them.

Hi everybody. Im kinda new here so dont be to hard on me. I have an older Dell pc that I am running with windows 2000. Over the years it has gotten a bit slower and Im sure a little clogged up. I went through my programs and discovered that over the years I have collected several programs all related to maintaining the pc. What I would like to do is uninstall ALL of them and do a fresh install of ONE program that does it all. Is there a program that does it all? Currently I have installed:

System Mechanic 6 Professional
Kaspersky Internet Security
SUPER AntiSpyware
Spyware blaster
Smart Defrag

I also must admit, I really dont have any problems with spyware or anything else. Like I said, a little slower than it used to be. But that is to be expected. I know that there is a new System Mechanic 8 out. I was thinking about upgrading to that and uninstalling everything else. Good idea or not?

Answer:Is there a good one for all program?

No. I used System Mechanic several years ago. It's not worth the money. Some of the things it does can be done better by free programs and stuff like a registry cleaner you shouldn't use anyway. It's not an anti virus. It has an anti spyware but it isn't very good. And it doesn't have a firewall. Chances are pretty good that Kaspersky is what is slowing down your computer because like most anti virus programs, it's running in the background and all anti virus programs slow down your computer to some degree. You have to sacrifice some speed to get that protection because you'll get infected if you don't have it. With the exception of Spyware Blaster, none of that other stuff including System Mechanic runs in the background so they're not slowing down your computer. Ditching all your security programs just because your computer is a little slow is throwing out the baby with the bath water.

I've used Outlook for years, but lately I've been using Mozilla Thunderbird. I've had trouble sending emails with attachments, so I called Earthlink (my ISP). They said thunderbird is an older version of Netscape and I should download and try Netscape. I have tried several times to download it, but it has failed every time. Not sure what's the problem with that.

So I have been using Comodo Internet Security, but I think it has been causing some problems with the OS. It made everything run slow. either it was the firewall, or nvidia drivers... I reinstalled Windows 7 Pro x64 (formatted hd and did clean install), and everything is snappy and fast like it was in the beginning. The thing that I am having trouble with, is that with the RC, I used Comodo, and had the Nvidia drivers and all that, and it never was slow like this was before the reinstall. I don't think I could have messed anything up in the system files, because I never did anyhting to them.

Bottom line, I'm looking for a good, free firewall. Let me know what you guys think!
