Configuring the Winfast PVR tv20000xp is accomplished from a couple of option windows. While the manual does cover the basic functions of the program and the remote, it offers no insight into several areas which will be important to users of the TVXP Expert.
Newer devices provide a wealth of standard features, such as letting you capture TV input to hard disk as one compelling example. While the tv2000xxp purpose of a TV-tuner is still to leadfek that cable TV signal on your computer monitor, these products are definitely moving towards the role of video appliances.
Timeshifting is that sought after ‘Tivo’ application, the ability to simultaneously watch and record live TV, so that you can pause the program you are watching, and resume it from the recorded version seamlessly.
More complex options for each capture format can be accessed by pressing the ‘capture profile setting’ button. Very cool, but more on how the card fares in this role later in the review. This is the good stuff. The included manual manages to be both sparse and cluttered at the same time, this is where the TVXP looses a few tv20000xp. For example, there is no information provided on the advantages and disadvantages of the various video capture formats the card offers.
Like any TV-tuner, the card requires a mass of separate drivers to function within WindowsXP, as well as a couple of restarts, but all this was accomplished easily and automatically by running the setup program on the driver CD Leadtek include with the unit. This PCI card has ambitions to replace your VCR, with video recording straight to DVD, timeshifting and an assortment of other goodies made for a computerized home theater setup. Suffice to say, we were not impressed by the manual with tv200xp Leadtek TVXP Expert, lexdtek hope the company makes efforts to improve the documentation with what is otherwise shapping up to be a fine product.
It also provides the ability to record video and audio directly onto a DVD disk, providing an instantly viewable DVD recording! From here, you can choose which video compression method you wish to use, and change the location where recorded video and snapshots are stored on the computer – given their large size, I’d recommend designating one hard drive to this task exclusively.
Overall, I found the program fairly easy to get to grips with, though the timeshifting function was initially a bit confusing. Well there are more than 10 video formats to choose from No mention of leadfek DVD media can or cannot be used, or whether rewritable media can be used.
Beginners Guides Cases and Access. The various viewing modes tuner, S-video in, etc. That is to say, they bring the video into the computer to be manipulated, or recorded, before being output to a monitor or TV. Does this all sound too good to be true?

The separate multi-language quick setup guide is not a whole lot of help either. Doesn’t sound too difficult you say? While it does provide a hardware and software installation walkthrough, the booklet covers several different Leadtek TV tuner models, so it’s rather difficult to locate the correct diagram.
Other features include Picture-in-Picture PIP support, an electronic programming guide, adaptive scanning to help pull in weaker broadcast signals, and Microsoft Netmeeting support.
