Yes but you need to Know what TV card you have in your PC

The software usually comes with the TV card.

To watch one channel and record another you are going to need a twin tuner card.

You are also going to need a good external aerial in you want freeview. internal aerial that come with the card are rubbish for digital TV.

What inputs do you have on your PC?

you can connect the aerial output from sky box to a TV capture card. o

OR use the sky box RCA outputs id you have Video and Audio inputs on your PC.
