Default Recording TV on Mini 10 (Windows XP) - 01-11-2010, 10:15 PM

I picked up a Mini 10 from Staples for $299. It has Windows XP and a TV tuner. I returned the HP netbook ($349 from Costco) because I couldn't get it's Windows 7 starter edition connected to my Windows XP home network. Anyway, performance seems fine - primarily watching dvd's (on old power dvd software) I create iso's by ripping a dvd, then loading with daemon tools. I would like to record tv, however. What software can i load to record over-the-air programs? Thanks for any suggestions!

For that you'd need Windows Media Center which as far as I know isn't available as an add-on. And if you upgrade your OS, you're better off going to W7. I'm sure there are other programs out to do such, try looking at
