    1, PVR pc based card (ie happuatage PVR 250) this can be used to capture the video in from the sky source or similar tv capture card.

    I purchansed this solution but has lots of problems with audio sync so gave up. And you also need your pc on to record programmes.

    2, dvd recorder to capture to dvd-ram etc eg panasonic dmr 50. 60 etc (can get dmr 50 for £230)

    I have a dmr 30 and have recently purchased a dvd writer (panasocin witer II, dvd-ram/dvd-r/rw writer - £85) for my pc so i can produce the menu on my pc and as the drive can read dvd-ram recorded on the dmr30 i read the files in edit as needed and produce some very professional looking dvd's on dvd-r for good compatability.

    I usually edit on the dmr-30 and then transfer to pc as it seems quicker for me.

    Im sure more options will follow but these are from my experience
