Years ago - on my last version of the TiVo box I used - there was a way to DL 
some of the programming to your PC. But, you were limited to only certain ones 
that the networks would allow you to do this with. This way - I could view some 
of my TV shows on my laptop whilst commuting on the train. However, I don't 
think I was ever able to actually Edit those videos - only view them with the 
viewer that was distributed by TiVo.

That being said - there used to be (and I think there STILL Is) - special video 
cards which you can use to view TV on your PC. But, not sure if with that you 
could edit videos. But, maybe you can. May be worth a look...
