Yet no Copy ProtectionGTLYON said:It allows you to transfer HD shows from your DVR to your PC via the component hook ups to a USB hook up on your computer (you can also hook it up via s-video for SD). You then can burn video to DVD or edit your video (commercials) with editing software, then burn a DVD.
I am a little more than just curious on how this works out. Let us know. I would suggest that if you have to step over the copyright's, you don't mention it here. We all know how, and can make unmentioned assumptions.GTLYON said:

I have two outfeeds on my receiver. One goes to my DVD recorder and the other to my TV. If I want something on DVD, I just play it on the DVR and start recording on the DVD recorder.thomamon said:Is there a way to copy recorded shows to your PC with the DirecTV DVR and then burn them to a DVD?
Just curious, thanks!
How is the quality when recording to DVD and what happens with wide screen issues?purtman said:I have two outfeeds on my receiver. One goes to my DVD recorder and the other to my TV. If I want something on DVD, I just play it on the DVR and start recording on the DVD recorder.
When you travel with three- and four-year-olds, you need these DVDs.
if hd:thomamon said:How is the quality when recording to DVD and what happens with wide screen issues?
Same here...with the original content being in HD...the 1 or 2 hour standard DVD recording playback is actually very good (but not HD, of course).dcowboy7 said:if hd:
obviously u lose the hd quality but its still pretty good (especially if its for kids viewing)....i use the s-video line to the dvd recorder....i set the disk record speed to get 2 hours max recorded on it....more than that the pic quality starts to really degrade.
i would say on a scale with 10 being the best hd pic quality:spartanstew said:do you think it's better, worse or about the same as if you were transferring VHS tapes to DVD (via a combo unit)?
I'd say if you record HD content to a quality DVD recorder at the max quality level...I'd pretty much agree..dcowboy7 said:i would say on a scale with 10 being the best hd pic quality:
copying an hd program thru s-video to dvd = 7.
copying vhs taped program to dvd = 5 at best.
