    I have some questions about the Black Gold DVB-T card. "Usage-type" questions - the sort you don't even know you need to ask until you already have owned similar kit.

    For any Black Gold users:

    1) Can the view be switched to "full-screen" rather than in a window of the
    BlackGold TV app

    2) If it can, and you are watching live TV, can PAUSE, FF and REWIND of live
    TV happen in fullscreen ?

    3) Are all functions like "channelchange" , "teletext", "pause live TV" ,
    "rewind" , "fast-forward" mapped to keystrokes ?

    4) Does the card/software handle digital teletext ( such as BBCi's Multi
    NewsScreen service ) and if, so does this work fullscreen ?

    5) Is automatic aspect ratio switching working in full-screen ( i.e. For
    example say I am watching fullscreen at a 16:9 desktop resolution - are
    widescreen adverts on Channel4 shown full-width and then when a 4:3
    programme like "Will and Grace" starts it is displayed at the correct ratio
    *automatically* with vertical black bars either side )

    6) Can I set recordings *without* using the BlackGoldTV application ( maybe
    by putting entries in the registry or by running a single visual basic
    script ) - I ask this because I would want to integrate the BlackGold card
    with the DigiGuide EPG application - this can call out to external
    programmes and supply recording info such as "date" "start time" "length of
    recording" "channel" , so I would want to tell DigiGuide to run a little
    script to set a recording in the BlackGold application - is this possible ?

    7) What exactly do you get PCI card, remote?, software?, drivers?

    8) What is the exact format of the captured recording files ?

    Are there any URL's to reviews out there ?

    Thanks in advance.
