Make My Own TV Tuner Software?

I remember this being asked before but since the search engine rejects "TV" I couldn't find it. How can I make a replacement to the software that came with my TV Tuner card (ATI TV Wonder PCI)?

How To Make A Trial Version Of Software
I want to make a kind of 10 day trial of some software I am writing but have thought about the following:

Either I can permanently disable the main functionality so they can get a feel to what the program will do (but can someone hack into a .exe and amend)?

I can install the program and store the installation date and then wait for installation date + 10 days, but if the user keeps amending the system date,it will never expire.

I can install the program again, and store the install date and keep storing the date the program is accessed and when I get 10 unique dates, stop working.

Or I can just limit the usage of the program to 100 uses, incrementing each time the user enters, problem with this, it can expire after 1 day if he goes in 100 times.

Any thoughts appreciated.

TV Tuner IR
Hello, does anybody know how i can go about 'catching' the signal sent to the IR reciever on my TV Tuner card? The software that comes with the tv tuner is not too bad, but it has an annoying thing where it makes the current window lose focus, so when typing in msn say and i use the remote to change the tv or radio channel (the application can be hidden away) it makes the msn window lose focus so i am trying to find a way to make an app to do the same job. I would also like it to display the current channel your entering say when listening to the radio.

Tv Tuner In VB
I'm trying to get the code that MS wrote for a Tv Tuner application to work. I created an msvidtl object on a form, and used this code provided from MS:
    Dim objTSContainer As New SystemTuningSpaces
    Dim objTuneRequest As IChannelTuneRequest
    Set objTuneRequest = objTSContainer("Cable").CreateTuneRequest
    objTuneRequest.Channel = 3
    'VidControl is the MSVidCtl Object in my app's main Form
    VidControl.View objTuneRequest

In my MSVidCtl object window, I get a pink still image screen with a few odd lines in it. I tried this code on 2 computers with different ati tv tuners in them. The latest model of the two I have is the ati 9700 all in wonder(so it should work). Does anyone know how to get this code to work? or have any suggestions for other routes to do this?

Change Channel With TV Tuner Card
I really hope someone can help me with this because it's been driving me crazy trying to find an answer anywhere on the 'net...

I'm writing an application that captures video from a TV card. The capture part isn't the problem -- I've found plenty of code snippets and examples for that. The problem is: how does one change the channel that the TV card is tuned to? I need to be able to tune the card through code since my application involves, among other things, scheduling events that automatically record video from a particular channel.

As I understand it, the DirectX SDK supports (somewhere) tuning a TV card but only in VC++. So, are there any normal API calls (i.e. for VfW instead of WDM) or can anyone help me out with a small VC++ wrapper to change the tuner's channel?

Many thanks in advance,

Capturing Video From A TV Tuner Card

WinFast 2000 Tv Tuner Takeover!
I know this one is a long shot, but I just have to ask in case someone here has some bright ideas.

I have a leadtek winfast2000 deluxe Tv tuner card. The card comes with a remote control and a small IR reciever that plugs into the back of the TV card via what looks like a headphones type jack.

Now I've seen that the supplied remote only works when a certain supplied app is running. Obviously this app, reads the incoming signals from the port and performs the required action.

I really want to reprogram the remote control - now I've gone through the dll's that are installed by the leadtek software by adding them as references in VB, but none of them expose anything, so no luck there.

Does anyone know a way I can hijack this port and read what's being sent in by the remote control??

Windows XP Analog Tuner Program Zip File
Here is a simple analog tuner program that I wrote for Windows XP Pro or Home only based off of Microsoft.

If anyone would like to test the program I would greatly appreciate the help. I set the program up to view channels 2 thru 60 on an analog cable feed. Sorry for the programs limitations I am just starting out.

Everything works picture feed and closed captioning. However, my video is upside down. I am wondering if it is just my tuner capture card. I am using an ATI TV Wonder.

I would really appreciate your responses back on the video issue.

Program requires:
Windows xp pro or home
Tuner Card
and analog cable/antenna Feed.

Here is the exe file.

That should be it.
Hope it works for you.

[MsVidCtl & MS Tuner Library] Problem Tuning Analog TV Through Cable
I'm trying to add TV support to a program, and correctly added analog antenna support so far, however I'm having problems trying to add support to analog cable: some programs get recognised twice on contiguos channels, plus they aren't found on the same order nor channel numbers the program that came with the hardware displays. Also, the program uses just a max channel number of 108 and I'm forced to use more than 210 channels in order to find all of them.

As far as I know doing this should be the same way as adding analog antenna, but just setting the InputType property of the AnalogTVTuningSpace instance to TunerInputCable, but it isn't working as expected. I'm on a PAL-B region.

Struggling To Make First Object - Make Class Property = To Combo Box On Form
I have an attachment that I would like someone to take a look at.
If you extract to C: it should create a folder named TEST with the Visual Basic code and a .mdb database.

Basically I've created a Class1 module and would like to make its Name property equal to whatever the Combo1's text comes up as (combo box) on Form1. At the end of the Form Load, it has a message box but it comes up blank. I'm pretty sure that I've got my Property Get sub commands correct in the class.

Depending on the default user initials that come up (gvntUser) then there are certain options allowed based on their profile. Some would be in a read-only category and only certain command buttons would be visible. An example of this is in the Class1 class. Class1.ReadOnly would store the property of true or false.

This of course is first of all based on the initial collection of pulling from orderentry.mdb database and then basing it on the Form1.Combo1.Text field as the Key. But I perceive something is not allowing this to happen as the Form is loaded...

This is just a test program that I'm learning through
On my real program, I have numerous combo boxes - some for salespeople, and some for types of orders.

Any suggestions is much appreciated. Thanks in advance for all of your replies.

How To Make Clicking Anywhere Make A List Invisible
I'm writing a program with a lot of frame objects, text boxes, button, and all sorts of gizmos, all available to the user at any time.

One funciton that I'm trying to implement is a menu system that pops up when the user clicks a button (much like the start menu in windows, but with different items in them). I have it implemented using a set of listboxes that appear/disappear when different elements on the menu are selected, and that's working great.

The problem that I am having, is that I want the menu to disapear if the user clicks anywhere on the screen other than on the list box (that I'm using for menus). I've tried the form_click event, but that doesn't work if there's frames/text boxes/etc on the form on top of the backround. For some reason the lostfocus event doesn't always trigger when I click off of the list box (onto the form, or other frame object or whatever), although it does work when clicking into a text box or something.

Anyway, I've been plugging at this for a long time. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
