In a conventional computer system, the ability to convert it into a complete multimedia system is one of the most attractive feature set. This is primarily what is being delivered by the AVerMedia M789 PCIe Dual DVBT to the host computer system. This expansion card which makes use of the PCIe slot provides the computer user with the ability to watch television broadcasts with recording and time-shift functionality. The supporting device driver allows the computer user to watch live television broadcast while recording from another channel. This functionality was previously available only in computer systems that had two TV tuner cards installed. These TV tuners would also have to function at a dual configuration mode in order to correctly function otherwise it would be a total waste of time. The installation of the AVerMedia M789 PCIe Dual DVBT and similar expansion cards gives the computer user with a work around. This is achieved by the manufacturer with the inclusion of two tuner chipsets in a single expansion card interface.
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
The AVerMedia M789 PCIe Dual DVBT normally comes with a single input port to receive television signals. The two separate tuner chipsets allows the device driver and its supported hardware component to simultaneously tune-in to two channels. The device driver is usually bundled with a proprietary software application that will allow for the proper deployment of the dual tuner functionality. Usually the functionality is not supported by the default media player or similar programs found in the underlying operating system. The main software based interface of the software application works in conjunction with the device driver to allow the computer user to watch television broadcasts, play DVD, or listen to Internet radio directly from the program environment. Consistent with the functionality of other TV tuner cards the AVerMedia M789 PCIe Dual DVBT also works based on the existing functionalities of the display and audio subsystems of the host machine. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AVerMedia M789 PCIe Dual DVBT errors before installing any driver updates.
