Cheap digital DVR?


Can anyone tell me how to turn an old computer into a DVR?   I'd have to do it on the cheap.

Sorry, I don't even know what that means. I hope to record tv off basic cable{no box}. I need an answer in layman's terms.
Are you still interested, I will try my best to try to get it to be easy and cheap for us both.( do you want to use a Mac or PC?)

We have a PC. What do you have in ,mind? Can I just get a tuner card and set up the software to record to the hard drive? Again, I have no cable box which presents problems, I hear.
You should just get a streaming box. You record to a website then.
I do not know your specific computer model to know compatibility, but this has the software to chose.
