I know this has been discussed in dozens of past threads and I have read and participated in some of them. A year and a half ago I wanted to find a way to archive to dvd and I dabbled and considered but never committed to anything. I want to revisit the topic with some fresh thinking from you guys. Fast forward 1.5 years. With all the new SW releases and the looming mpeg 4 asteroid strike and apparent future obsolescence of the 921, are there people still doing this successfully? I can go either route, purchase a "stereo" component recorder or do it through my home PC. My son asked me last night if there was a way to dump shows to dvd and I knew there was (or at least used to be) but I couldn't give a good answer. My computer sits close to the the TV so running some sort a cable is viable, however, I would probably prefer a dedicated component recorder. I'd like a solution that is fairly simple so my wife and family could easily do the dvd dump. If it makes any difference, my TV only has componet in and outs and no HDMI connex. I use toslink for audio. Thanks, I'd really love to hear some responses.
