I idly wondered if you could do it because I'm occasionally on the box and although I can usually get a vhs from the programme-maker it would be much more convenient to archive my own stuff digitally rather than hang on to odd tapes.
..you could use a dvd recorder then grab the dvd to your PC.
Or...theoretically you could use a TV Card or Media Center type setup to take the Sky signal but it wouldn't be able to pick the programs I suppose so you'd have to leave it on the appropriate channel - same with dvd recorder I guess :(
Be nice if Sky launched such a thing - I bet there's something out there that can do it.
...stream TV throughout your home, with the remote signal sent back. I think you can get Freeview TV Cards for PCs so that should cover most channels other than some of the more obscure Sky ones. I'd like something you can program over the net so you can record something from work.
yes, that's one crucial bit of the wired home that seems to be missing! Maybe it will come with 802.11n and the faster streaming speeds ... I'm holding off on decisions about buying a Sky box or a Media Centre PC - it slightly depends on whether I get a job I'm in for. That's out of my hands!
