Record Sky+ programs onto Laptop

I have a HD TV and Sky + connected, there are some programs that i want to burn to disc. I dont have a DVD Recorder, but was wondering if i can connect the laptop to the TV and record from there somehow.
if it is possible this way as it will save me from getting a dvd recorder, can someone guide me on how to do this.
Thanks

You will need a way to input the signal to your laptop such as the Easycap.
http://www.easycap.co.uk/
How well it works can depend on the processing power of your laptop but it comes with all the software to record video ,

Bigpockets were selling a gadget a few months back .Folk rated them very highly .
A few details :
Aopen Xrecorder (VX2000s) available - USB device with a hardware mpeg2 encoder for recording analogue TV/composite/S Video. It produces very high quality captures -.
Someone on one of the forums was selling one cheap and I bought it . I tested it out when I got it and the quality was excellent . I have used a TV card and I bought a Easycap but found on some things the audio/video was ocasionally out of sync .But ,not with the Aopen device. The Aopen even has a Firewire port to capture from a camcorder , it uses a CirusLogic chip which does all the work , then sends the signals on to the laptop/PC . It comes with software too . The device does not capture in true DV so you wont get massive files ........normally 12 or 13 GB per hour........I think I recorded for half an hour and the file size was about 650mb , but I was very supprised at the quality .

I have one of those, it's quite good as it does the video converting on the fly so it uses very little of your PC resources.

it does have a tuner in there too but that's a bit useless as it's analogue.

Yse , the good thing about this device is ,you can plug anything in to it you like ,Freeview ,DVD ,satbox ,video ,etc by using a scart adapter attached to phonos cables [video,left & right Audio].
