TV recording software (something like Slipstream?)

I'm looking for a recommendation for good TV recording software. A friend of mine recommended something called something like Slipstream that records high-quality video on the fly, and later compresses it to DivX or something similar. But I can't find anything on the net with that name. Anyone know what this might be, or have other recommendations? Thanks.

Might your friend have meant Snapstream?

Yep, that was it. Thanks! Any comments on it (or any other package?)

I am currently using Windows XP:Media Center Edition. It's incredible and raises the bar for TV Tuners on the PC.

However, for now it is only available with new computers or from MSDN with a subscription. It requires MPEG-2 decoding software (i.e. WinDVD) and a hardware decoding card (i.e. WinTV PVR-250).

SageTV is worth looking at as well.

XP Media Center Edition is done very nicely; but as is Microsoft's typical practice in these matters, it records MPEG 2 video in a proprietary container file.
