Record TV (Cable) and burn to DVD?

I want to Record TV (Cable) to my PC and burn to DVD.

Then I want to take the DVD disk and play it in my Panasonic.

What is the best and cheapest TV tuner to get for my PC so I can load it onto my PC and burn it to my DVD Recorder?

Or, tell me how you are recording TV and burning to DVD.

Thanks for any help.

Do a search on Pinnacle and/or I/O Magic in this forum for inexpensive tuner info. The I/O Magic, and probably the Pinnacle, comes with software that will let you record in Mpeg-2 format which is what you'll want for playable DVDs.

I use the ATI All In Wonder 8500DV video card. Just plug the cable wire into the back of the computer and capture with the DVD quality setting. I then edit out the commercials using Ulead VideoStudio. Author & burn the DVD with Ulead MovieFactory.

This is a perfect way for beginners to get started. It's all very simple to use.

The best place to go for info is
