I am after some help on a setup to replace mySky. I am considering getting rid of mySky due to it being so expensive and now they lost the golf coverage which along with the rugby and the recording options were the main reasons I had mysky.
I figure I can watch the rugby at the pub so the only reason to keep it would be for the recording capabilities, which seems an expensive way of doing things.
So I was interested in building a PC that I can have permanently plugged into my TV to record Freeview programmes and might get light box which I coulld stream through the PC also.
The questions I was hoping you guys could help with were:
1) Will I need a normal aerial cable to go into the video recording card in the PC, or can I use the sky cable I already have to pick up the Freeview signal? I.e are there video capture cards that will work with a sky cable and will it pick up Freeview.
2) I have never used a video capture card in a PC, do they have features like series link?
3) is there any particular cards that you would recommend? Please note I am happy to pay quite a lot to get a good one.
4) any other recommendations for this kind of setup to make it work really well?
Thanks so much for your input.
