Depends on your hardware. If you have a Hauppauge PVR 250/350 and John
Wehle's driver port installed, then you can just use "dd" from the raw
device and have a very clean MPEG2 stream. On the other hand, if you
have a capture card based on the BrookTree chipsets, then you can use
mencoder/mplayer or fxtv for viewing/capture and playback.

My personal recommendation is go for the Hauppauge cards, I have a PVR
350 and it just works beautifully.
Also, try searching the list archives. This has been discussed quite a
bit over the past year or so.
