1.) Can a video capture card such as WINTV capture television directly from your a show you are watching on sattelite tv? if so does it put it directly to the hard drive and how complicated is it to do? And is this works, can you scedule the card to record a certain channel at a certain time, (Like a tivo)
2.) Do dvd's have their own special file format, if they do would it be possible to put the dvd file on my computer and then convert it to a veiwable avi file? are there converters out there that will do that?
Thank you very much
