Be sure you have a large hard drive as these captured videos can exceed several Gigabytes per hour.

video capture

If you have a Direct TV DVR you can output it to a DV recorder at 480i. Blue Ray drives for computers are expensive and the disks are way too high in price. Maybe in a coule of years the price will decrease.
