For example, you can get a PCI card that takes a video
signal (antenna, cable, composite) and uses your computer
monitor as a TV screen. So you don’t need a TV set.
Now, instead of having to use a stand-alone recorder,
is there a PCI card that will take video input (antenna,
cable, composite) and encode it to DVD IN HARDWARE
and stream it out to your harddrive or dvd burner if
you have one. It would seem to me this would be
something very popular - is there any such device?
I realize there are software programs that will
encode a video stream to DVD, but that takes
so much computing power, so it would seem
logical to put the encoding part on a PCI card -
does anyone know about anything like that?
I think it would be better than using a stand-alone.
I have the LITEON 5001 and I am not complaining
about it, but, it would be better if I could control
the whole shebang via my mouse and keyboard,
which would be the case if the function of a
stand-alone recorder were put onto a PCI card
(except for the actual burning or recording).
What about it?
