can i record tata sky channel programs on my pc using tv tuner card?
any one done it?
You can't do this by just recording using tv tuner card as the signals are encrypted. Don't know if possible using any software
you can do it by connecting the output from STB to TV tuner's AV in, AFAIK>
It won't work
arey the output it gives is same for tv or tv tuner card. i think it should work.
It does work. I do it some times.
It works. U'll just need to connect using the video out and the left/right channels from the STB to the tv tuner card and set the video source as 'composite' in ur tv tuner software.
you can simply capture channels using tv tunner card by connecting av code or by rf code.only one channel at a time.
Can anyone confirm that they have done recording with tatasky, does it work, does it record stereo sound.
I want to buy tuner card to record music shows.
I have recorded numerous episodes of Friends using my Pinnacle Tv tuner and my TataSky connection. You just connect the STB to the tuner using the regular cable instead of the composite cable. Tune the tuner to channel 68 and record! Whats the big deal?
Thanks for the confirmation, is it the external box or the internal card, does it record stereo sound left /right channel?
yes you can capture live tv shows from tatasky. I have recorded many shows and still doing it. All you require is an analog TV tuner card..even a cheap intex card will do the job. Stereo sound? not sure. you may get a mixed output of left and right channel because of single line in socket.
I have tried a pinnacle pctv 50i analog tuner with SUN DTH and Linux. you have to get a S-video cable and connect between STB and tuner card.get the left and right audio o/p from STB and give it to the tuner/onboard audio line-in .you may need a cable with single pinn in order to plug into onboard or tuner audio input.
next fire up the software which you use to record.select S-video i/p and line-in audio.thats it!.
PS: I dont know whether dishtv or tata sky got s-video and stereo audio o/p for SUN DTH only!
^ tatasky has got s-video and stereo audio out thats for sure
thanks for confirming this, I assume u have recorded it as stereo..........right??
or its based on ur information from some source.
NO s-video in tata sky set top box.
I want good quality recording as I am sound critical person same goes for video , do these card stretch the normal TV 4:3 ratio to fit or keep it as it is. My lcd 20 inch runs at 1680x1050 & last time I demoed 2 cards the guys could not stop the image from stretching.
How about CPU usage, since these are all software based recording, does it go too high?
I'm using a custom audio cable, a 2 pin out to 1 pin in cable for audio. If you use the audio cable that comes with tatasky you will be getting mono audio.
No source personal exp..
whom do I believe now? I hope they have the same STB across the country or do they have separate models with S-video?
am not sure what s18000rpm referring to...anyway i will better attach a scnshot later
..may be am wrong..is that composite video out???
