Hey, Im thinking of getting a Tv Card for my pc. Would i be able to record the television programs on to my computer? If so how much hdd would it take up per hour?

Cool so about 785mb per hour. Not bad. Well i was thinkin of puttin my digi box(either sky dig or what was itv dig) on to the card, so the quality should be good.

I have Freeview and I record programs onto my pc.

I connect the digital box to a video recorder and connect the recorder to a Matrox Capture Card (or TV card if you don't have a capture card). It works perfectly.

The advantage with connecting to a video recorder first is that I can also record onto tape and have a backup should anything go wrong with the pc capture, like dropping frames, which is quite common.
