    Buy any TV tuner card. Feed the RF-out from STB to RF-In of card. Or better still use composite RCA cable to connect AV signals (I think that most TV tuner cards do not have a component input).

    The point to be noted is that you can change channels from the STB only.

    Why anyone would like to watch TV on PC is beyond me.

    Record programs on computer? How?

    If one uses WinAVI, it will capture in raw Windows AVI format (5 min video = 1 GB). There are no softwares that are powerful enough to capture video in real time, convert it to MPEG and save it to disk, all at once.

    The ordinary TV tuner card can only displat the video on screen and send the sound to speakers. One can buy a hardware capture card that can achieve live recording but it is quite costly. One is better advised to opt for TataSky+ instead.

    AVer Media HD EzRecorder C283. This is the only option without getting your warranty cancelled from the DTH Provider for opening and tempering with Set Top Box , and not getting caught up in all illegal copyrights violations. This is a simple solution and it dose not involve copying,distributing,copyrighted material,because we are capturing it . But of course it would need one time investment as all backdoor entries do.It's around 7500 Rupees.Now let me guide you through the benefits.

    Primary Benefits:

    1. Stand-alone, Stand Out Recording (No need of PC or Laptop at the time of recording, plus you can simultaneously watch the show and record the same time)
    2. One-press Capture (press a single button and the recording starts)
    3. Prime Time Anytime with Schedule Recording (record your favorite shows without your personal presence near TV)
    4. Storage Facility (Both Internal as well as external is available)

    Picture Quality and Storage Benefits:

    1.Everything can be recorded in max 1080i Quality(a bit below 1080p , 1080P not supported)plus you have the options of 480i / 480p / 576i/ 576p/ 720p to select from if you want to switch resolutions
    2.It uses H.264 Hardware Compression Technology (No video Quality loss)
    3.Instant Recording Playback
    4.It has Built-in 2.5” Hard Disk Slot (Buy the hard disk from market and insert it in, all the recording will be saved in it)
    5.There is a USB Port (where in you can attach USB Hard Drive , portable hard drive,pen drive what ever you want or what ever you have handy, all data will be saved in it) YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE 4 STEP OR THE 5TH STEP , NOT BOTH

    6.NO NEED TO CONVERT THE FORMAT OF THE VIDEOS YOU RECORDED AS ALL THE RECORDED STUFF IS IN AVI HD FORMAT(easily playable in what ever device you want , as avi format is generally compatible with everything)
    7.As all the data is saved in external drive it's easy to carry,transfer,share
