Is it possible to record a programme and view it at the same time using Daftgrab (or a similar program). I tried it today but the picture on Daftgrab was pixellated too much to be worth watching.

Cheers :)

p.s. I still haven't got VLC to play dvds on my dreambox :(

at the moment its not possible to watch tv on daftgrab whilst recording using dreambox, this is a problem with the dreambox software/cpu not daftgrab. however im gonna bring out a new version soon in which you can record using daft grab.

Does recording use the Dreambox software in some way?

Not related, but do you know of any links to using a Dreambox and Windows Media Center (mce)?

The record feature im making does not use any dreambox cpu, it takes the stream you watch on your pc and saves that to a file. I only have a linux version working at the moment , but im gonna release a windows version.

Daftgrab new version is totally new re-code in C++

If you use the media player that came with daftgrab and select a channel on your dreambox then click VLC on webinterface it will work.
