David, I have a T.V. card in my computer at the house that works a lot like Tivo and I am able to burn shows to DVD. I recorded the BK griller commercial on the P.C. and did a little editing for my own amusement. The wife wants to transfer all our home movies to DVD. You would need a video capture card for your computer to transfer the shows.
This could get off topic REAL fast here.
If you don't mind email me off list at dave at pobox dot com. I have a couple of questions in regards to the above.
