OnAir Solution GT USB HDTV Receiver/Recorder Reviewajmatson - January 22, 2008
To install the OnAir GT, you must first install the drivers from the driver CD. Place the CD into the tray of your optical drive, and then plug in the OnAir GT to the USB cable and an available USB port on the computer. When the box pops up for driver location, point it to the disc and away it will go.
Once the CD is loaded into the system, you can start the software installation and configuration. A window will pop up letting you choose the model that you have so that it will install the correct software. Once the model is selected, it presents you with the options available for the GT. You can install the drivers, the HDTV program, which lets you view the TV on the PC, a copy of nVidia PureVideo Encoder, and a copy of InterVideo WinDVD Creator. The serials for the extra software are on the back of the CD sleeve.
Once it is all finished, you have several options you can enable or disable based on your usage preferences. You can elect to automatically launch the remote control software and the scheduling software when the computer starts up. You can also create the necessary icons on your desktop and associate .TRP files with the player so that it launches automatically when a .TRP is clicked.
The next two products are optional but recommended. The nVidia PureVideo Decoder is a plug-in that delivers more vibrant color and smoother MPEG-2 video for your system.
Next to install is the InterVideo WinDVD Creator which allows you to author your own DVD movies. I will talk more about this in the second part of the configuration.
