I have an AiW 9800 Pro and capturing video from cable/s-video is way too easy: there is a record button on the (free) media player software you use to watch whatever "line" (cable, s-video...) is being displayed. You can supposedly set up schedules to record at certain times, but I haven't gotten into it that much. You can also do that whole pause live tv thing... I use the card mostly to play my GameCube games on my computer though; I only played around with the DVR type stuff for a couple days after I first got it.
That said, I've found the quality of tv/video doesn't seem as good as watching it on the TV. I've played around with alot of the cable settings, but nothing seems to improve the quality. I guess I may have set something up wrong though... If anyone could shed some light it would be much appreciated.
