I think I looked into this before, but I didn't think it was possible to use a computer in a tivo role with directv involved. I need to grab the games from Directv with my sunday ticket subscription.
Ahhh I see.
If the card has a TV input for coax antenna or s-video I would think you could connect the Direct TV box to the PC as if the PC were a television.
You would have to watch what you are recording and would have to make sure the DTV box was on and turned to the correct station but I think it could work.
There are some cards from Matrox that have an external connections box that may work.
Just a thought. Let us know what you figure out.
