Record TV on laptop

Hello everyone !

there is the Some movies on tv and as I am in my apartment and I have a TV and my laptop, i am wondering how I could do to make a recording
So I have a TV, a laptop but no card acquisition. I wondered if it was possible to acquire image and sound ,Also whether it was possible to turn on the computer at a set time and start recording as I would be ongoing.
Thank you in advance

It would not work simply by connecting the HDMI jack on the PC and configure everything that is recognized as the input video and audio ,
So I would need a capture card and software for registration, but no way to do otherwise..

Re: Record TV on laptop

Yes there are a few possiblilities. First if you use a Tivo or a hacked DirecTV Tivo you can download the shows from the units onto your Laptop in a Mpeg format which is watchable on your laptop.
Secondly you can purchase a PCMCIA TV Tuner card for pretty cheap that will basically turn your laptop into a DVR so you can capture shows/movies from your TV or DVR and save it on your Laptop in a few formats: AVI, MPEG, Etc. Check out this link for what a PCMCIA TV Tuner Capture card is and how much it goes for aproximately.
