I have a friend who will be living out of the U.S. for a while and has asked me to send him dvd's of a few tv shows. I normally record these shows on my vp622 so that is not a problem but how can I easily get them to dvd without playing them out one by one to my stand alone dvd recorder. My recorder has an internal timer and even has an ir hopper so I have basic control of the vip622. My problem is getting the vip622 out of screensaver mode. I assume I could do that by setting timers that would instead of setting a recording would tune to the channel. I see that as an option. While that might work, I wouldn't have a recording on the dvr for me to watch. Quality is not important...so right now I am using the s video output of the vip to go into the samsung dvd-vr357. suggestions?
