I am new to this but, I was told that I would be able to send my recorded show to DVD. I have a very unstable R15-500 and I can find that feature anywhere. is there software of hardware that is available that I can do this ??

Welcome, New Guy!

It is not a 'Function' or menu item. You just connect one of the available Audio/Video Out connections to the input of a DVD recorder. You can use a stand alone DVD recorder (as I do) or connect to a Video Capture device on a PC. You record the program as it plays from the DVR.

If you are thinking (or were told) that you would simply be able to 'transfer' the video files from the DVR to a DVD (like copying files on a PC), you cannot do that.
It is rumored that 'DTV to Go' functionality is coming that will allow that type of transfer of recorded material, but there is no date as of yet...

Not surprising, they seem to provide a good deal of 'less than accurate' information these days...

By the way, if you are wanting to record PPV movies or premium channel (HBO, Starz, etc.) movies, the recorder will have to be able to defeat the copy-protection embedded in the programming. I have to use a video capture box in between the R15 and my Sony DVD recorder to 'remove' the copy protect before it gets to the recorder.

Two in a row, we're on a roll!!!
