Switching TV Channels on a TV Card

2006-03-24 01:18:28 PM
i need to write a simple application that changes a Channel on a TV Card.
For the TV Card, i am not sure if i want to take [1] or [2], I suppose
there is a standard way of doing this using DIrectX.
Does anyone know if it is possible to have the TV Card be used by
Windows Media Encoder while my application then "externally" switches
the TV Channel without interrupting Encoding?
Thanks for any hints!
