Any PC able with a DVD burner can address video to DVD; but to get your video into your PC in the aboriginal place, you'll charge either a FireWire affiliation (for anon importing video from DV cameras) or a USB 2.0 TV/video abduction device. If you're abbreviate on ports, attending for a PCI add-in interface agenda that has both FireWire and USB 2.0 ports; you should be able to acquisition one for $25 or less. (Of course, you'll charge an abandoned PCI aperture to add it to your system.)
A cardinal of abduction options are available. At the beginning are TV-capture cards such as Hauppauge's (pronounced hop-hog) $99 WinTV-PVR-150 Star Trek Voyager Seasons 1-7 DVD Box set, Pinnacle System's $90 PCTV Pro, or alike Hauppauge's $199 dual-tuner WinTV-PVR-350, which lets you watch one affairs while recording another.
