So I want to record live TV on my HTPC. how do I do it? Here's what I have. Sandy Bridge Celeron based PC TV connected through HDMI port of Radeon HD 4350. Currently cable box is connected to TV's HDMI port #1 PC is connected to TV's HDMI's port #2 I have never done TV tuner/capture before and I have no idea how this thing works... a few question - 1. Do I have to route the cable box through the PC's TV tuner card? and if yes do I have to keep PC on all the time when I want to watch TV? 2. Is it possible to get a HDMI splitter and send one signal to TV and other to PC and record on PC while keep watching TV? If I use splitter, will the quality deteriorate? If both are possible which is a easier, more practical option? Need recommendation on capture/tuner card. budget is not a big issue, want to do it right and want good (not necessarily the best) quality. Please excuse my ignorance, if I am totally wrong and need to start all over, please tell me so, I am totally open to all kind of suggestions... I am not necessarily looking to schedule recording and all that good stuff, just want to record live TV and want to keep the setup as uncomplicated as possible.
