My old AMD pc ran XP and hooked up to the 8300HD via S-video to a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-350. I really, really liked using WinTVCap32 and the WinTVCapStart GUI for it. I just Time Warner cable recorded to VCR manually after setting off a timed span of recording in WinTVCapStart. I really, really, liked recording this way. Did you get how much I liked it?
Just got a new Intel C2Q with a EVGA 790i mobo and 32-bit Vista Home Premium and no longer have the old pc. I put the WinTV-PVR-350 in and loaded the Hauppauge driver ok. I started to try using Microsoft Media Center and immediately could not find the 8300HD nor liked using it.
Can anybody tell me how I might do it similar to my old setup with my new setup? Of course I realize it will be in a different way in every respect. At the least can those in similar hardware, plus Vista, setup explain how they record their TV shows to their pc?
