How to Record a Cable TV Show


When you don't have the time to watch your favorite show, you shouldn't have to wait until the show comes out on DVD to catch the episode you missed. Using new digital technology, you will never have to worry about this again. Whether you use your computer or a set top box to record your favorite TV shows, they will always be at your fingertips.

  • TiVo is the most popular digital video recorder on the market. TiVo allows you to schedule recording ahead of time so that you can automatically record every episode of any TV show you with. Moreover, TiVo boxes contain large hard drives that are capable of storing hundreds of hours of TV shows, so you will have all the time you need to catch up on your favorite programs.

  • Take a look at Windows Media Center. This software package, which comes with most versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7, allows you to record TV shows using your computer. Note that you may need to install a third party TV capture card that allows you to connect your computer to your cable box.

  • See if your TV cable box includes a recording function. Many TV service providers now offer cable boxes that have a built in record feature, so no additional software or hardware is necessary. Even if you have an older box, you may be able to get a free or discounted upgrade by calling you TV provider.
