ChrisTV TimeShift lets you freeze the live TV stream, giving you a break while is still recording.
TimeShifting is giving you, recordings with time delayed playback being different from the linear recording style you were used till now.
By TimeShift recording you can fast-forward through commercials and create your instant-replay on a live TV program.
Never miss anything from your favourite show, by timeshifting recording, a simple pause will let you resume later the interrupted TV program viewing.
Timeshifting is based on a principle of buffering the encoded images captured from the live TV program.
Such kind of temporary buffering lets you go back and forth playing on an imaginary timeline of your live TV show while this is still in progress.
# There are 3 Timeshift Running Modes :
* Using software DV Encoder ( with high CPU usage and large size for buffer file )
* Using software MPEG Encoder ( only MPEG Intervideo Encoder 3 is supported for the moment )
* Using hardware MPEG Encoder ( available only for TV Cards with MPEG Hardware Encoding Module )
# Starting with version 5.00 you will be able to choose your favorite Timeshift Quality settings to save diskspace or have best quality from 4 presets:
* Best (video bitrate 9600 KBits/sec),
* Good (video bitrate 6400 KBits/sec),
* Normal (video bitrate 4800 KBits/sec)
* Low (video bitrate 3000 KBits/sec).
# In version 5.15 or higher, you will be able to make recordings while using the timeshift feature. You can choose if the recording starts automatically when you begin timeshift or manually when you want, same goes for stop timeshift recording. Please note that you won't be able to record in past, only what is in present time on the live stream.
# For software encoding TV Cards there is the option to mute the Preview Live Sound while in TimeShift Mode
# The timeline is as large as the temporary buffer is set: from several minutes, to several hours depending on your available storage space. You can customize the TimeShift Buffering Time duration between 1 and 300 minutes ( while in trial mode the maximum duration is fixed to 35 minutes ).
