Many antivirus programs, such as Symantec Norton Antivirus, automatically scan the hard drives on the PC at fixed times. As a result, antivirus software may interrupt long recordings.


Communication to the PC controlling the TDT hardware should be limited to pertinent applications during data acquisition. We strongly recommend closing unrelated programs and disabling virus protection during data acquisition. Once an acquisition is stopped users can then access other applications.
