I just picked up the Hauppage device about which sigma here told me. It allows me to record HD recordings to my PC from my DirecTV receivers so I can then burn these to a BD disc for safekeeping. As someone who's new to Blu-Ray disc burning, I admit that I'm quite disappointed on the lack of user friendliness of BD burning software. The software that came with the Hauppage device I got is terrible. I've tried a couple other programs like ImageBurn and others, but so far, I have been unable to burn my recordings to BD discs. With ImageBurn I get "IO error" when selecting my external BD drive as the destination to which the burned image/file is supposed to end up. With the included Arcsoft software of the Hauppage HDPVR, I'm unable to select my BD drive and its 25GB disc onto which I wish to burn a recording. My Blu-Ray burner included Cyberlink burning software, but I have been totally unable to burn a BD disc using that, despited numerous attempts to do so. In short, the whole experience of trying to do a "simple" thing like burning recordings to a BD disc has been disappointing and frustrating. I realize BD burning isn't the same as a simple, traditional burning of a CD or regular DVD, but this is ridiculous! To say I'm very frustrated and disappointed is an understatement. Isn't there any user-friendly Blu-Ray burning software out there? I'd prefer the free programs, but I'm willing to invest in something if it isn't ridiculously expensive.
