For capturing, I believe linux is your best bet.  I had tried using the 
bktr driver, but I couldn't get it to work properly with the card I had. 
  It could work somewhat from what I remember.  The card was my 
brother's and he used it under linux, but he upgraded to a better one.

Legality should be the same as a VCR/DVR, personal use only and don't
