Recording events of the Olympics

During the 2004 Olympics, I video-recorded the events using video recorder. However, it was spoilt and not popular anymore. Hence I had to find an alternative way of recording the events.

My first attempt failed because the USB TV tuner I bought earlier could only receive black and white images and could not detect sound. After struggling with it for two days I gave up.

This morning I went to a chain computer shop to buy a better tuner. I found one good one - the Vox II USB 2.0 Analog TV Tuner.

The bundled software Arcsoft TotalMedia worked well with the tuner. I hope to be able to record the events of the 29th Olympic Games with this gadget.
