from my tv satellite reciever and input it the the sound card to be able to
play or record music.Can this be done and how?
Any advice on how to do this appreciated.

You need a "Y" cable. Dual RCA on one end and 1/8" stereo jack on the other.

Dunno about WMP, but you can use either CDex or Audacity to record from the
line input. CDex is a free CD ripper/audio converter. Audacity is a free audio
editor.
