we found it awkward to do it on freebsd so used kubuntu.

we tried lifeview flyvideo 2000 tv card which worked fine with mythtv
and kdetv, but couldn't pick up the cable station we think due to our
location in canada.

for ripping we used perl's dvd::rip.

our harddrive can't hold too many shows so we just use the dvd player
on the computer now to play them.
