I believe you can plug a flash drive into that port though.

You guys. You can't save stuff from your DVR to a flash drive. LOL that's there for "future use" or, for some DVR boxes, to plug an external hard disk to it so you can increase your recording time.

Then tell me how the people that upload to YT get GH on there? I've always wanted to know. Honest question.

Does anyone want to start guessing what episodes they'll use?

I think the following are probably sure bets:

Clink/Boom

Stone dies

Luke and Laura's wedding

Sonny leaves Brenda at the alter

Sonny sees Brenda is alive

One of the Nurse's Ball

If you have Windows, you should already have Windows Media Center which comes with Windows Vista Premium and Windows 7. Thats the program used to do the recording. All you'd need to get after that is the hardware. I think its so much easier and more efficent to have my PC set up as a DVR than a standalone box. Makes it easy to move files around, edit, making gifs/clips, upload to YT, etc... And I dont have to pay a monthly fee to a cable company to use it. Plus space is never much of an issue as I can just shuffle things to an external hard drive or flashdrive for longterm backup.

I have Windows 7 on my laptop. But, no sound card. So, would the DVR still work? Or, would it not record sound?

You'd need a TV tuner and the simplest options for laptop is getting a USB one like this:

Connect that to your PC and then your cable to the end and you can watch and record tv
