Recording TV shows
07-22-2012 05:25 AM
I have a basic (probably not digital, since it's only $10/month ) cable service and would like to record some network (ABC, NBC and CBS) TV shows for watching at a later time. I'd like to avoid additional cable TV monthly service charges, but I'd be willing to pay a small one time charge for a download (such as beyond tv, if its easier to use than Windows Media Center) or purchase additional hardware (such as a DVR, if it has advantages over using my PC)
Can I connect my Windows PC to my television using a HDMI cord or do I need additional hardware (such as a DVR)? Is beyondtv or another download easier to use than Windows Media Center?
