a55 video control question

I would like to trigger my a55 to record a video with my computer. I'm not going to be around when an event happens, and I just want the computer to hit "go."

I've captured images from my older Sony cameras with gphoto2, but according to the manual, it does not yet support the --capture-move option. I don't have Windows, but if there's a way to make this work from Windows, I'd be glad to find a computer that runs it. If there's some kind of remote control or other device, I'd also be happy to hack it to be controlled by a computer with a relay. I don't want to break the camera itself, though.

Any ideas?
