I had thought about a DVR/PVR — but then the question comes of where to put the video once the hard drive fills up, what removable media do I transfer the video to to save it. Also, I have analog cable (with clear qam channels), so a DVR/PVR, from what I've read on the available ones, are not compatible with analog cable.
As far as TV capture cards go, I've looked at the specs on a few, and I have not been impressed. Plus the compression seems very high on a number of them. (Most, for analog capture state that 1 hour of video will use 1.5Gbph for it's best quality capture. I can set my DVD recorder to XP mode and record 62 minutes over 4.7 Gbph.)
