Media PC With Sky

  spex75 21:43 21 Jul 2008

Here's my thing.

I fancy building myself a PC that will act as my media centre.

The actual specs outside the CPU, Mobo, RAM etc I'm fine with. The problem comes when it comes to the "media" side of things.

What I want to do is get myself a 32" HDTV. I want to connect this up to my PC - which is easy enough, I think the hard bit will be get my Sky box connected through my PC. What I really really want is to use my PC hard drive as a kind of TV hard drive. My Sky box is just a normal Sky box (not Sky+ or anything)

Any suggestions on getting this rig up and running?

Many thanks

There is some info here on making a pc in to a pvr

Can you record from your sky box via a normal video recorder? You will need a video capture card
with the right inputs to connect to your sky box.
By the time you've sorted this all out, sky+ may well seem like a cheaper option.
