Hi,
My question concerns simulating a DVR’s digital recording of television programs on a PC. In a new system build with Windows 7, what additional components are required to provide DVR like functionality?

What type of TV programming are you wanting to watch? There are currently no good options if you are wanting to record premium channels on Cable or Satellite. A simple TV tuner card can provide this type of functionality if all you're wanting to record is over-the-air programming.

Hi,
The type of TV programming is currently satellite. I have seen "off the shelf" digital recorders that are programable like a VCR. At a minimum, that should be possible on a PC. The television cards that I have seen do not have much to offer, and I'm not sure if they are a "digital TV tuner" or not.
