Basically an analog television signal encodes the image and sound information in an analog format before transmission. It makes use of different amplitudes or frequencies of the signal in order to reach the viewer via the television set or in this case the host computer system. Since the AVerMedia M113 PCI Analog TV (PAL/SECAM/FM) supports analog signals its device driver must comply with the PAL, NTSC, or SECAM encoding standards. The reason for this is that majority of analog television signals make use of one or more of these encoding specifications. The UHF or VHF carrier is responsible for modulating the encoded data until it reaches the receiver of the destination machine. Analog television standards draw the contents of the entire screen one frame at a time regardless of the picture content. This process is the same one applied on the host computer system with the supported hardware component acting as the receiver for the carrier signals.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Unlike a conventional television set which relies on the tuner device, the AVerMedia M113 PCI Analog TV (PAL/SECAM/FM) must also rely on the capability of the main processor and other hardware components. When plugged into a vacant PCI slot on the computer motherboard the device driver communicates with the device drivers of the elements of the display and audio subsystems. This process will ensure that the analog signals can be correctly received and rendered by the host computer system. Essentially since the computer system components are digital in nature a conversion from analog to digital is undertaken. This process is evident when video capture operations are undertaken by the computer user. The storage of the video signals also include the recording of the corresponding audio stream. Playback quality is dependent on the presence of the correct codec as well as the current load of the system. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AVerMedia M113 PCI Analog TV (PAL/SECAM/FM) errors before installing any driver updates.
