PVR 5.x > How to use > How can I optimize the recording performance in PVR?
Performance for recording depends on the computer system. The following steps can help to improve performance.
 
1. Try to retain as much free hard disk space as possible.
2. Use a faster hard disk drive. (7,200 rpm or higher)
3. Disable Power Management in the BIOS.
4. Close unnecessary memory resident programs.
5. Use the defragment tool to optimize the hard disk.
6. Do not run other programs while recording.
