Sky+ To Windows Media Centre

Is it possible to copy films from my Sky+ box onto my Windows Based Media Player?

I'd like to do this so I can stream the films to other PC's around the house via Ethernet/Wireless.

I have a Window Vista Home Premium based PC without a TV Card so I'm hoping it's possible to do this via USB..

Any help greafully received.

Cheers :beer:

You will need some sort of USB video input device that accepts normal AV signals - RGB, s-video, composite video (or RF via an analogue TV tuner) and the copying will be in real time - i.e one hour programme will take one hour. The USB on the Sky+ boxes has no current use (other than charging ipods and mobiles on some boxes) and is now unlikely to.
