But in my opinion it's a lot of effort to do it this way. I would buy a second hand computer and install a separate TV card, and just use it for recording one or the other. Total outlay probably $140.00.
I am considering the purchase of the HP z557 Digital Entertainment PC.I spend six months a year Stateside and the remaining six months in Africa.The z557 comes with NTSC and ATSC tuners.Africa broadcasts in PAL, not NTSC.I also have found that Hauppauge sells a Pal model of its Wintv-PVR 500 MCE(Media Center Edition).I want to record tv signals both in the U.S. and Africa.
Will I be able to use the 500 MCE while in Africa and replace the NTSC card when in the States?If this is not an option,any suggestions to resolve my dillemma?How can I use the z557 to record tv broadcasts in both NTSC and PAL.
Any ideas will be GREATLY appreciated.
