How to record TVPad shows

A perfect solution for those who want to record TV shows on the TVPad without the hassle of connecting to a PC, simply connect this device to the HDMI output port of the TVPad and it’ll record footage in pure 1080p 30fps HD quality. It even has a scheduled recording feature for those who want to start recording at scheduled times due to time-zone differences. The AVerMedia EzRecorder ER130

Whether you’re recording your favorite TVPad shows, or video games, it’s all at the click of a button. Your TV-watching schedule shouldn’t define your life, that’s why setting your couldn’t be simpler (why do you think we call it the “EZ” Recorder?). Just turn on your TVPad or satellite box, set it to the channel of your desired show, and it’ll start recording at your program’s scheduled start time. Save time and storage by only recording the footage you want. You can pause and resume recording during the same show, and will save the clip as one file, making it ideal for editing and sharing across social networks. Speaking of editing, gives you a built-in video editor to trim and splice clips, no computer necessary. You can even take snapshots of specific frames during playback if there’s a particularly spectacular image you want to capture.

What we found was there are many other video capture devices out on the market, but very little have schedule (date & time) recorder options and compatible with TVPad.

How to Install TVpad Channel “Apps”

When you start TVpad3 or TVpad4, you will see the “TVpad Store” at the top of the main menu. Through the “TVpad Store” you will be able to download apps for: Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Vientam TV (NAMTV). However, if you wish to install: Japanese (NIJI SHOW app) or Korean (Solive app) you will need to install an app called “N+ Store” through the USB port located at the back of the TVpad console. I will explain how this can be done below.

In order to watch Japanese, Korean, and other various channels you will need to install an app called “N+ Store” through the TVpad USB port. To do this, you will need to download the “N+ Store” app along with the TVpad package launcher.

The TVpad package launcher can be downloaded here (gvos2-sd1).

The N+ Store app can be downloaded here (1375428545889.pkg)

Place both files above in the root of a blank USB drive.

Note: Without the package launcher loaded on your USB, the TVpad will not be able to read any apps on the USB.

 

Insert your USB drive into TVpad4 that contains the TVpad package launcher and the N+ Store App

Once the files load to the TVpad, the following screen will appear. Select the top button

How to Properly Connect your TVpad to your Home Network

Here I will introduce how to properly configure your TVpad to your home network in just 3 EASY STEPS.

Step 1:

 

Gather your Home Network Details

This is the most important step. Make sure you get this part right!

Go to your computer that is connected to your home network.
Click on “start” located at the bottom left of your windows screen and search for “cmd” (short for “command” or command prompt)

start

 

Once command prompt is opened, type in: “ipconfig/all”

cmd prompt1

 

Press ENTER. Command prompt will list all you network details

cmd prompt2

 

From your list, note down on a piece of paper the following.
1) Subnet Mask: (the example above is 255.255.255.0)
2) Default Gateway: (the example above is 192.168.0.1)

 

You will need these addresses to setup your TVpad connection!
You are now armed with all the information needed to start the installation!

 

 

 

 

Step 2:

Connect your TVpad to your network Ethernet Switch or Router.

Connect your TVpad HDMI cable (or AV/RGB line) to your TV

Connect power to your TVpad

tvpad3-install

Note: Although TVpad is WIFI compatible, TVpad recommends using network cable for best performance.

 

Step 3:

 

Turn ON the TVpad and set language and time settings

A blue LED will light up on the TVpad unit to indicate power is ON

IMG_1207

 

TVpad3 will appear on screen

IMG_1192

 

TVpad legal agreement will appear on screen. Click on “Accept”

IMG_1176

 

Language screen will appear. Choose a language you are most comfortable with.

IMG_1177

 

Time zone settings screen will appear. Choose your time zone.

IMG_1178

Your initial setup is complete! Now you will need to setup your network connections and start installing apps!

 

 

 

Step 3:

 

Configure your TVpad network settings

In your main menu, select “Settings”

IMG_1179

 

Your settings screen will appear. Select “LAN Settings”

IMG_1184

 

Your “LAN Setting” screen will appear.

From the information gathered in Step 1 (above), enter the following:
1) Your Subnet Mask:
2) Your Default Gateway:
Important:
For your TVpad IP Address, enter the same address as your Default Gateway EXCEPT for the last digit. The last digit is recommended to be 127
For example, if your default gateway is: 192.168.0.1, your TVpad IP address should be set at: 192.168.0.127

Note: I chose the last digit to be 127 because your other network devices such as your phone/ipad or other wifi connected devices will automatically pick IP addresses in ascending order starting from 0. It is not likely you have 127 network devices in your home… You don’t want your TVpad IP address to overlap with any other network devices.

Next, set your DNS server to: 49.213.10.163 (This is the TVPad server address for the TVPad broadcast network!)

 

IMG_1182

Once you’ve inserted all the parameters, select “OK” and a message “Cable Network Configuration Succeeded!” will appear on screen to confirm your TVpad is properly configured.

CONGRATULATIONS! You are now properly setup your TVpad4 to start watching Live streaming TV!
