This depends on the particular model. Some DVRs have DVD players built in, and some do not.

By itself, a standalone DVR (Digital Video Recorder) without a DVD drive built in cannot play a DVD.

Run component cables (red,whit and yellow) from the DVR "video out" (yellow) to the "video in" of the DVD recorder. That will send the picture to the DVD recorder. If your DVR or DVD recorder does not have the yellow video out or in as described, use the "S video" out of the DVR to the "S video" in of the DVD recorder. The red and white jacks are for sound....out of the DVR to the audio in of the DVD recorder.

Can you record a show saved on DVR onto a DVD if you have a DVD recorder connected to the same television?

Transfer Recorded Show From DVR to DVD, Most likely not, until you connect the output of the DVR to the input of the DVD. Then with copy protections, you may still not get a recording. Depends on the movie or program you recorded, and whether or not copy prevention signals have been inserted in the original program, or are being placed there by the program provider.


How do you download from a dvr to a DVD?

You cannot download a file inside the DVR unit onto a DVD disk the same way you can download a music file from the iTune store. But you can record output from the DVR to a DVD disk using either a stand-alone DVD disk recorder or computer's DVD writer. Connect an analog output on the DVR (such as S-video, component, or composite for video and RCA / red and white audio) to the input sockets of your stand-alone DVD recorder. Or buy a USB or PCI 'video capture' device for your computer so that you can connect DVR's analog output to the video capture device on your computer. While a TV show is played on the DVR, the stand-alone DVD recorder or computer will record it.
