      Sky plus to PC (another thread!)

      Hi all,

      I have been looking at the hard drive upgrade threads, but I think I will go for transfaring to my PC rather than opening the Sky+ receiver!

      I notice the S-video out, I am just wondering if anyone else sends stuff to the PC? Any pitfalls? and what TV or capture cards you use?

      I have an old TV card, but it records in Mpeg. so will be upgrading soon to a divx card or similer.

      Cheers

      What box have you got Sky+ or skyHD. If sky+, then the HDD updgrade is just so easy, a little more trickier on skyHD tho.

      I haven't transfered to my pc in a few years, never really got on with it.... far too time consuming and the quality was never a patch on the original.

      its a standard sky+

      ahh, if it reduces the quality then It wont really be worth it, I suppose. I will give it a try but not buy anything specifically for this task just yet then.

      Thanks for the reply.
