I have a show that I want to retreive images from for a website. I would like to somehow transmit the television show to the computer and retrieve the images to post on a website.

Is this possible?

Thank you.

video capture device. It can be a PCI or USB device. You install it on the PC, connect your TV inputs, satellite, cable, or off the air to the suplied connectors, use the software that came with the device, save the program to the HD, play it back on the PC, use the software to "capture" a still image, save it as .jpg or .bmp.
