dvr to computer hard drive

by mech1983 / June 15, 2007 2:47 PM PDT

I would like to record live tv and shows that I've recorded on my scientific atlanta explorer 8300hd dvr to my computer hard drive. Would this work if the cable goes into the dvr first, then into my computer via a pci capture device (such as the ATI TV Wonder 650 High Definition PVR & TV Tuner PCI Card), rather than connecting the cable directly to the pci capture device? Would I have to worry about any encryption or anything like that?

Thanks in advance!
