Using PC to write HD programs to disc
by bdmho3 - 2/7/13 9:53 AM
I had posted this question under another heading and it was suggested that I re-post under a PC-related heading, so I'm hoping someone here can help me.
We use OTA broadcasting which comes in through our DTV-PAL which we then watch on our HD TV. I'm looking for a way to write HD programs that I have saved to my DTV-PAL to a disc keeping the HD formatting intact. I currently use a Panasonic DVD recorder/VCR combo to record my programs onto a DVD, but the quality suffers greatly because it doesn't record in HD. It was suggested that I purchase a Blu-ray drive & a video capture card then connect them to my PC, so I need advice on how to do that. And then, what do I need to connect my computer to the DTV-PAL or my TV to access the program to, in turn, write to the Blu-ray drive? Our antenna comes in to the DTV-PAL, which is connected to our TV (a Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 that's a few years old.) My PC is a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 laptop that's probably 5 years old. Any help or insight would be appreciated.
