    Hi guys , Ive just bought a new pc that has a WIN TV DVB-T card (thats what it says on'my computer' settings) installed. Is this known as a PCI card ?

    I understand I can plug an aerial into it to receive TV pictures, but can I somehow hook my VHS video recorder to it , to copy old VHS tapes to my pc ?

    If so , what cable do I need ?

    Thanks for any help .

    Device Manager should have some information about the card if it's plugged into the motherboard.
    This one (not the same card you are referring to) is a PCI card.

    You should be able to look at the card to see if it has an analogue input (sVideo or composite connectors) I would expect it to have an input for a stereo mini-plug as well.
    If your not sure, Google the description in Device Manager.
