    MediaPortal is pretty good provided your card is supported.

    Showshifter is good but not free (and I think the company behind it is closing down so may not be around much longer).

    A google search should help.

    I tried most of them over the years and the best by some margin is GB-PVR (and it is free/donateware and the support is great): This is providing you have a hardware encoding card (Hauppauge 150 etc.). If you have a software encoding card then Mediaportal is good. Showshifter though is in limbo and the solution is a bit outdated now.
