Connect the DVR to a DVD-R recorder, via the AV/SCART sockets.

Monitor what is going on by connecting the TV to the DVD-R recorder.

Playback the show on the DVR and press 'record' on the DVD recorder.

The recording is made in real time and is therefore slow, but it works.

You can substitute the DVD recorder with a computer, suitably equipped with a Recordable DVD drive and video capture card or dongle.

Again it really depends on how many gigabytes your drive is on your DVR that will determine how many shows the DVR can hold. Usually a 30 gig drive can hold about 30 hours of television, so depending on how big your DVR is will depend on how many shows you can record. Other things to keep in mind are if you are recording shows in HDTV, as these shows tend to take up more space.

However, if you have a computer and a Tuner/Digital Recorder card (separate purchase required,) it's possible to record the videos on to your computer and then save them to a disc.

There are lots of interesting shows that one can find from a DVR. One of my favorites is The Walking Dead which, as of November 2013, airs on AMC at 9pm on Sundays.

You can play a recorded show from one DVR but you cannot play it on another DVR. A DVR works similar to a computer that is not linked to any other computer or the internet. You may record something on a single DVR and the television it is linked to will save the show you want to watch at the particular time it plays. Then you will be able to go back at a later more convenient time and watch the show as you like. But if you two DVRS' in a house, one upstairs and the other downstairs, you can only play recorded shows on the DVR that you recorded the show on.

No, the TV only shows the signal. It does not produce it.

The first DVR Blue prototypes were unveiled at the CEATEC exhibition in October 2000.

A disc has limited storage capacity compared to a DVR. It doesn�t have a hard drive or �real-time� recording capability.There are some DVRs that have built in DVD recorders. Some allow you to burn DVDs while you watch and record television shows and movies on your DVR or simply burn saved shows to your DVD to free up space on your DVR. Check with your local electronics store to see which brand would best suit your needs.

That is entirely dependant on the built in disc space of the DVR used to store the videos. Check to see how much storage the device has. There should be a list in the manual or online at the site.

No, I do not think so. We have a DVR, and when we record shows onto a VCR tape, the show being taped must be playing. My only suggestion would be to hook the recording device to another TV.
