Lupke Brother Before downloading and installing the trial version. Does it have SyFy channel? :-)

Michael K Can you please explain the role of using a VPN with this program.

It would be very helpful if you could particularly explain in some detail when a VPN service subscription is necessary and also when PCTVision can be used without a VPN and how this is done.

MacTVision Support Hello!

To Lupke -

No, we don't have SyFy specifically, however you may find some of the shows they carry inside the partner channels that are available.

Access to those shows will depend on your area in the world, and what may or may not be blocked in your location.

I will explain more about this in Michael's VPN question below...

To Michael -

Some users find VPN is necessary to access certain content in their area. We have no control over blocked content for different portions of the world due to copyright issues that are controlled by the media providers. We only pass along their streams in a easy to use interface.

Most users in North America have full access to all channels, while most other parts of the globe use VPN to bypass any blocks, but this is totally the call of the customer. Some content does show however, as the software is smart enough to pick up on anything available to your specific location.

The trial is fully functional, so we have designed this as a means to test and make sure it is a good fit for your situation before purchase.

Hope this helps! Thank you for your questions!

Michael K @ Vendor:

First, let me thank you for your fast response and helpful answer.

Second, I would also like to thank you for pointing out the fully functioning trial you offer which I will download now.

Finally, thanks for pointing out on your website the names and links for a couple of VPN services you regard as being good.

One of your links is to StrongVPN which has a 24/7 live chat I've been talking to and they seem very professional with a range of subscriptions that should cover most needs by the looks of it.
They have a 3 day trial which i will now try in conjunction with your software.

All much appreciated and I think I will find your software very useful, thanks for bringing it to Bits Du Jour.

John Paradiso Is there a way to record tv programs though the application.

Michael K I downloaded the trial and have been trying it for s few minutes with these observations so far. I would much appreciate the Vendor's feedback if I'm missing something and therefore if they feel my early experience and observation are wrong.

1) This software seems to be an repository for links to actual content providers around the world. I like the concept and could make use of it but for the fact that it is "light on content".

The reason I put "light on content" in quotations is because i expect someone to say.... Michael, how can you say the software which contains thousand if links is light on content?

My response is that if it does not have what I'm looking for and know is available then as far as I'm concerned, "it's light on content".

For example I did a search for Magic Radio out of the UK - not there. I did a search for Heart Radio and LBC Radio, again both out of the UK and again, they were not there.

Same is true of TV stations that I could not find, so while there are thousands of links in the program if i can't find what i want through and I know it exists on the net for viewing then I the it's database is less useful to me than it could be.

2) I can find a location column so I don't know where a Radio or TV station is broadcast from. I think location is important aand i'd like to be able to search for all stations say out of the UK, or all stations out of Holland or New York. I could not see a way of knowing where anything is natively broadcast from.

3) On the home page of the PCT Vision Website is a demo - I personally found that all but useless and not worthy of being called a demo.

All that said, I find the concept and potential of this software exciting and the provision of free upgrades makes it attractive and hopefully future proof.

However, right now i need to be told that my observations are wrong and what i am looking for really is there in the database and program options and it's just that I'm not using the software correctly. i need to be told this if I am to get a bit more fired up about what this program can do for me in finding all the great TV and Radio programs there are out there to listen to and view.

MacTVision Support Hello again!

To John -

No, sorry, that breaks copyright issues and we can not provide a recording service in the software itself.

To Michael -

Yes, it is a portal, and for the links you mentioned missing, you can add your own channels inside the software if you would like. We just can host without permission. There are hundreds of thousands of channels available in the world, with only a small portion we are permitted to link directly to. Thus the self-link option if you choose to use it.

As for the radio feature, that is just a freebie enhancement. Not something we specialize in. Just an extra for those that can use what shows and what we are allowed to link to.

Thanks for sharing your opinion with everyone.

Take care and please let us know of any more questions! Thanks!

Michael K Hi Folks - sorry about the typos in my prior post - it would be handy if we could edit them when errors are picked up after the after the "POST" button has been hit - but that is one for Roger or Nico.

The depth of the database content is paramount and I would appreciate knowing how often the database is updated centrally and added to in any volume. Also, in the response to me you said that I could add my own content to the database. if users do that and add to the their database, is that information collected by PCT Vision?

The scope of database fields seem a little limited, for example there is no location field - have you considered adding to the range of field columns or allowing users to customize the fields in their database?

Roger Thomasson @ Michael

Actually, you can edit posts as long as they are at the bottom of the conversation thread. An FYI since not everybody is aware if this :-)

Michael K That's neat Roger, thanks for the edit info - would be nice if that could be extended to being able to edit at any time but at least if one is quick to spot errors it can be done now.

VLM I'm interested in certain specific channels:

National Geographic
History International

also local pbs channels

That's what I typically watch, if anything. Are these available?

Hey, I'm editing my comment!!! wowzers!!!

Oh ... I AM in the USA, ergo North America (from your VPN discussion, above). :)

Here I am, editing again ...

I need a way to download a demo that doesn't require me to go through CNet, please.

Tylicia Tchelebon What is the point to buy this if so many channels are blocked online but are not over a subscription from ones cable company? I can't view half of what I can on my cable. with this but can see American channels from my home??? Will you be changing that or asking them to let these channels be viewed from your product? Such as Netflix has? Just curious. thx Tylicia
