Can An HD Program Be Burned To A DVD?

796 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  rudeney

I have an HR21. Suppose I record an HD program. Can I burn it onto a DVD in SD? With my old Tivo, I could come out at 480i and use a DVD burner on, say, a DVD +R recorder. Do I have a similar option with the HR21, which has s-video output?

Also, if I've recorded a movie, rather than just a TV program, is there some copy protection I should know about?

I want to be legal, but, occasionally, I appreciate the portability of a DVD.

Thanks in advance for brilliant and useful advice.

use the "analog hole", just use the rca plugs on the back. everything will have to be recorded in real time. you can use s video but you need audio sent as well
1. yeah use the s-video as the picture is better.
2. dont do over 2 hours on a disk or the picture quality really degrades.
The HR2x’s do support analog Macrovision copy protection. So far, I have not encountered it on any D* programming, but YMMV!
