Spent a bit of last night getting a TV capture card into my server. This morning, I ran about 200 feet of cable from a cable decoder to the capture card. A little cron here, a little C there, and huzzah -- I now have a way to record TV on my computer.
One time cost of, like, $300 all told. Ahh, but it's only money and the knowledge lasts a lifetime.
Well, until one forgets, anyway.
K~ has to work today, so she's missing out on the away game being televised right now. She doesn't know that I got this working, but when she comes home in a couple of hours, she'll be able to watch it with a couple of steaks that I plan on pan frying with some sherry and rosemary.
