Unfortunately i still have alot to learn about computers.

I have an AV500 which i luv to bits but i am currently recording directly from my front room ordinary TV / freeview digibox.

I am thinking of buying a TV CARD and fitting it to my PC to then record films etc... onto my hard drive to then later quickly download onto my AV500.

My only concern is not being able to download the recordings easily. Am i likely to encounter problems or is it relatively straight farward?

Will it record in a compatible format i.e AVI or MPEG4 or will i have to translate re-encode etc...? (complicated for me to do)

Can anybody recommend any makes/models of TV cards?

Your help would be much appreciated. smile.gif
