Umm -- how big is your hard drive?
720p would be 165MB per second and 594 GB for a one hour show
1080i would be 187MB per second and 670 GB for a one hour show

I don't personally know anyone with a computer that can compress those streams at speed although I assume all the local TV stations 
have a bank of computers to do that.
