Projects / Kalva


Kalva is a KDE video recorder that is simple to use and easy to setup. You can use it to schedule a single movie recording by choosing the date from a calendar. A serial recording may be scheduled by choosing the days of the week. You can store recording options in various profiles for different hardware and quality levels. Kalva can import channellists from programs like xawtv or xawtv4, and can generate a new one using scantv.
