My computer has a TV tuner card in it; I have my GameCube, as well as my TV antenna, connected to it. While I was at a meeting, it recorded "Deal or No Deal" and "The Apprentice 5" (premiere). One advantage to recording the shows and watching them later is that I can skip ads: "PgDn" to skip 30 seconds. Useful little button.
It sometimes makes for amusing combinations on the audio track.
