MacDailyNews Note: Take the output of your cable or satellite box, pass it through a DV converter, plug that FireWire output into your Mac and, using QuickTime Broadcaster, your Mac is now a PVR. Use Apple’s QuickTime Broadcaster AppleScripts that will start, stop, record, etc. QuickTime Broadcaster in conjunction with a script scheduler such as iDo Script Scheduler (US$24.95). The best thing is that what you record will be encoded live to your drive in a format you specify (for example: iPod video) in QuickTime Broadcaster’s preferences – no additional encoding necessary!
