View Full Version : Running as service

2004-01-22, 11:49 AM

I would like to use GB-PVR as a service using PVR-350 hardware only so another user can use same computer to browse internet or play games. I've succesfully installed and runned it as service with Firedaemon (http://www.firedaemon.com/), but when it's a service I have no way to access the controls.

Is there any way Hauppauge IR-controller can have access to a service? It seems it works only if the GB-PVR window is visible and focused.

Another thing, why there is not Finland in direct record options? I've had lots of problems to tune channels... (Wintv and other PVR-software works fine) http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif

If you shutdown the hauppauge remote program before starting, and the PVR350 tvout is enabled, then GB-PVR will try to directly using the Hauppauge remote. This means GB-PVR will not need focus etc. Give it a go.

I've added Finland for the next release. Sorry. http://gbpvr.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif *If anyone else wants other countries added, just let me know.

how about if i am using gb-pvr on a pvr150? i have gbpvr set to open on secondary monitor and am using my video card's svideo out to display on my tv. i want to use the remote to control gbpvr without having focus, as sometimes i am doing other things on my PC while also using pvr functions.

how about if i am using gb-pvr on a pvr150?No, this approach doesnt work on the PVR150. The change the way the IR device works on this model. Its only applicable to PVR250/PVR350.

Keep searching the forums though, as there are a few options mentioned by other users in the past.
