DESCRIPTION:PVR-150 or PVR-500 recordings, when viewed, appear to be "zoomed in" on a corner, or "stretched," so that the recording is missing a large chunk of the picture throughout. This happens under certain circumstances, when recording at a quality profile using a resolution other than 720x480. There is a workaround and a solution for this problem.
Set Beyond TV to record using the "Best (DVD Ready)" quality; since this is profile uses a resolution of 720x480, this problem will not occur. Or, upgrade to Beyond TV 4.3, which contains this workaround by default.
Install the following version of the PVR150/500 Drivers:
You will need to download these 3 files:
Then, follow these directions:
To ensure that Beyond TV is aware of the new drivers and uses them properly, be sure to delete, and re-create, the video source.
