whats the best way to record a show - for example - a tennis match from Tennis Channel into some format that I will be able to keep forever
What OS are you currently using on your computer ?
Have you thought about this :
IN my area,the cable company charges a premium for the Tennis Channel.A friend who plays tennis in a different area,different cable company,also pays extra for the Tennis Channel.With that said,if Goldenears has to pay a premium to receive it,he will need his cable box,or something that has a cable card,and only some TV sets have that option,that I can think of.You still may have to pay extra for it,even with the card, depending on your company,and area.A cable card takes place of the cable box,but has its limits.No video on demand,or anything else that needs the box to talk to the cable servers,to turn on features.I would be guessing if it is over channel 100(ballpark number),it needs the cable box to be viewed,or recorded. It usually falls out of the basic cable range most of the time.
