I want to record a TV channel for 24 hours and save it to hard disk. (er.. to keep it for personal use).
What PC tuner and software can handle this task? I used to have an old Hauppage PCI card that came with some software. It could record what you were watching, but I remember it used to freeze up every 5 minutes.. (so I was never certain of how long it could record). Do you know if Hauppage's products, today, are up for the task? What other technical specs are suggested? (More than 6GB RAM? How much disk space?)
Yeah, I was watching some of those YouTube vids where they have all those old commercials, goin down memory lane. So I thought I'd try to get at LEAST 1 channel recorded in it's entirety for a 24 hour airing and archive it. So ya know, one day I can look back at it and say "Ahhh memories..." I'm sure the kids here *my 11 nephews and nieces ages 0 - 13* can enjoy it when they're all old and senile. lol
Edit: Oh the reason I want it to be a 24 hour recording is because, as you can see in the vid below, I want the shows to be there WITH the commercials. It's a bit depressing watching the vid below and remembering what shows came on with them, but the shows aren't there
