TV recording (also referred to as video recording of video capture) can be done in various ways. Using the good old VCR, a DVD recorder, a harddisk recorder and subscription services like TiVo and DirecTV. But the most flexible way for TV recording still is by using a tuner card in your PC.
Why is this the most flexible way ? Because it allows you to do with the recording what you want; watch it on any PC, stream it accross your network to your PDA or mobile phone, convert it to other file formats for playback on your iPod, PSP or any other portable video player, burn multiple recordings to DVD with your favorite authoring software, you name it, you can do it!
With the start of the HTPC / Media Center era, where the PC is more and more integrated in our daily activities at home, the need for flexible TV recording solutions will grow even further. People want to watch TV when it suits them. TV on demand, but hardware and location independent, with high quality video, easy to use and of course low cost. The PC will become a Personal Video Recorder (PVR), not only recording what you specify, but also recording what you probably would like to see, based on previous recording prefences.
WebShifter's aim is to make scheduling a TV recording as easy as sending an e-mail or making a phone call.
TV recording anywhere is the future. The future is now, the future is WebShifter!
