The included multimedia utilities and drivers are all located upon one cd. The installation
process has been greatly simplified as eVGA’s ADM check your system to determine
what’s installed (VGA and AGP drivers-wise) and takes the installation from
there and installs the necessary drivers as well as the software.
After a quick reboot, the systems tray now contains two new icons; NVRemote and eVGA’s
Multimedia Center. Each utility is somewhat programmable.
The NVRemote’s software capabilities are limited to choosing which applications
start up at the push of the green buttons atop the big dial. Right clicking atop
the icon in the systems tray also provides shortcuts to the programs. NVIDIA
could easily improve upon the NVRemote software package by providing a
key-mapping utility to add extra shortcuts or assign hot-keys to the buttons
because as it stands now, the remote is useless outside of media viewing
eVGA’s Media Center’s menu lists 4 features to choose from: Watch TV, Play a DVD, Edit a
Movie & Make a DVD. Each setting opens up a corresponding application. The
applications assigned to each function can be modified, allowing quick and easy
updating of the software to suit your desires.
