Television Screen Caps
This may make me appear beyond dumb, but how in the heck to you get screen caps from the TV screen? I have a screen capture program...and a cam...but how is it done? Is there some way to run the TV image in thru the computer for capture. Some of you techies know? Many Thanx... :hiya
I asked this a while back, and I am pretty sure they have a card you put into your computer so you can watch TV or have it transferred to your computer from your TV. I think they cost around $40.
I'm not sure how you'd do it properly but this is a shot off the tv from my camera cellphone. :teeth
We have a couple of great sceencappers on site. I hope they'll stop by and give some help. I'm not one of them unfortunately :lol You do have to have a card installed in your computer , not just a program.
I have a card installed in my computer (Hauppauge PVR-350) that allows me to record TV shows onto my computer's hard drive like a VCR does onto tape. Note: The cable vision cable has to be split and plugged into the computer as well as the TV.

Once the show is recorded I watch it using the included application and use its built-in function to make screen caps. There is a whole industry springing up to record TV shows onto computers, they are called PVRs (Personal Video Recorders), the most popular complete stand-alone commercial unit is called TIVO.
What else would you like to know?
