pc as hard driver video recorder

PC world have got a PC with 160GB HDD and XP media centre, with DVD burner and TV card. (packard bell 1538)

How reasonable is it to be able to use this to record tv programs, as you would with a stand alone hdd dvd recorder.

Essentially i would record stuff onto the pc, burn onto dvd and then watch on my TV.

The pc is upstairs and tv is downstairs, so i cant do the more obvious thing of just watching straight from the pc.

I have been doing it for years as have lots of other readers of this forum (I would imagine). As long as you have the right software etc its straight forward, go ahead and enjoy.
