SCART connection input to Media Center

    SCART connection input to Media Center

    I am running WIN8 Pro with Media Center.

    I would like to record TV into Media Center, but it requires a TV Tuner.

    I have Sky+ with a Video Sender. It has a SCART connection.

    Can anyone recommend a way, or a device, that can use a SCART connection input to Media Center?

    The SKY+ box would be the tuner.

    I think what you could do is this.

    Find a scart to video cable converter which connects to your scart socket but has output terminals for composite video cable.

    Like this Scart Adapter Only 4.59 at TVCables

    Now you will need a video capture card on the PC to input the signal to record it.

    (PS I'm not sure if this will work for HD transmissions - never tried it).

Using VLC instead of media center.
VLC is a free Linux program, and works very fine for playing DVDs and a lot of other things, so there is no need to buy Mediacenter. In some ways it works even better.

Media Center to see micro SDXC as part of Media Library?
OKAY. I have a Surface Pro with 128 GB storage so I want to conserve space by using my 64 GB micro SDXC card which is seen as a removeable drive. It is so small and sticks into the pro to where you can't see it. It does not stick out so I just leave it in there all the time. How would I get...
