Here's one for you.. I'm just about done converting all my old TV shows to DVD. About $120's and 7 months later, it'll be well worth it to preserve old memories for future familly generations, when the VHS tape would have long degraded... However, now I've got another problem. I want to completly ditch the VCR off of my computer desktop, in order to get rid of at least some of the wires that are cluttering at the back of the desk. I'll be able to ditch the VCR plug, two cable connectors, and one cable splitter. Leaving only about 10 other wires left, heh. But, is there anyway I can program the TV Tuner to tape shows like a VCR would? Especially when the Tuner is in 'off' mode, so I don't have to hear Lettermans voice intrude on my dreams as the Tuner starts itself up to tape it. If so, I'll be able to ditch analog, and go completly digital for 2003 !
