How do I schedule automated webcam recordings on Windows? I have a laptop at the back of a classroom, and I want to be able to record classes by setting up a schedule beforehand. How can I do, essentially, a DVR for webcam recordings?

The laptop is running Windows Vista (but XP and 7 are options). The webcam is a normal logitech. I currently manually start & stop recordings remotely, but that only works when I have access to a computer at class start / stop times.
I want software that I can input a schedule to, and it'll start & stop webcam recordings automatically. I want output as a normal movie file (avi, etc). I don't need streaming or anything fancy. Just start & stop recording.
Is there any software like this? The only I've found that claims webcam & scheduling (the two things I need) is ChillCam (http://www.chillcam.com/), and that thing is awful & didn't work with my webcam. Any others out there?
