A few co-workers do this. All you need is a TV tuner card for your computer with the right cable connections. You won’t be able to record 4 or 5 shows at once like today’s DVR’s. My friends have their PC as part of their entertainment system and have it working like a movie server. One has almost 600 movies to view.
Here is a good article on how to do it  LINK

    Try to get a tv tuner card and u can do the same what u want. Hope, u have a cable tv line, u can plug the coaxial cable into ur tv tuner & then stream the video into ur computer via S-Video / usb. Then you can use some recording software (or link here) to save the video to hdd. Today, most tv tuner cards will come with some recording software included.
