PCI card to display broadcast TV signals on your computer complete with Windows & RISC OS Iyonix drivers. Also suitable for viewing video from a DVD player or FreeView/FreeSat box with composite video output.

Supplied with RISC OS software !PCITV, developed by Simon Wilson, available from:

PCITV is a driver and TV viewing application for RISC OS, bringing television and frame capture to your Iyonix desktop.

PCITV is able to show TV images at full frame rate at the maximum possible resolution of the TV image. It is able to show full screen video by changing to a mode closely matching the original resolution of the TV picture. No burden is placed on the processor and the TV image does not skip or break up when the processor is put under heavy load.

Currently implemented:

* Live video on the desktop (via primary surface drawing)
* Full screen or windowed display
* Resizeable video (maintaining aspect ratio)
* Always-on-top TV viewer window
* PAL/NTSC/SECAM support
* TV tuner control and channel scanning
* Composite and S-Video input
* Mono and stereo sound, along with second audio channels (SAP)
* Cropping (allowing window off-screen)
* Frame capture and save (example, from the PAL output of my digital camera - note that this is some way off the full resolution of PAL)
* Keyboard support (via cursor keys)
* Picture controls (brightness, contrast, saturation, hue)

* for teletext see below

To be implemented:

* Partially covered image (allowing TV window below the top of the window stack)
* Overlay support (when I've figured out how to signal a frame change via interrupts)
* Channel suite manager
