You also can record on DVD rw disks and them transfer from the stand alone too computer too take out comercials.

I don't know if you can take out comercials on a DVR's.

The biggest difference between a DVD with recording capability and a DVR is:

  • A DVR uses a Hard Disk Recorder (HDR) to digitally record movies and television shows from your TV to a hard disk (like the one in your home computer). DVRs record in real-time, which allow you to pause or rewind at any point in the program.
  • A DVD recorder records to discs and not a hard drive like DVR. 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.

How do you hook-up a DVR to a DVD recorder?

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.

How do you copy shows from DVR TO DVDR Disc?

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.


How can you record from a dvr to a DVD?

You need a DVD recorder, or computer with recordable DVD drive and capture device. Use the AV outputs on the DVR and connect to the AV inputs on the DVD recorder. Play the program on the DVR and hit record on the DVD recorder, with a DVD-R or RW in the drive. Record in real time. The recorded disc will have to be 'finalised' before it can be played on any DVD player. See the instructions for the DVD recorder to find out how to 'finalise'. It may be better to use a computer and then apply edits to your completed program, before commiting the disc.

Can you record a show from your DVR to a disc on your DVD player your DVD player is not a DVD recorder?

NO Not unless you have a recorder. The laser in a recorder burns the data onto the surface of the DVD. If you wish to transfer a video file from your Digital Video Recorder to a Disc, you must have a burner to do so. You may, however be able to transfer the data from your DVR to your computer using a cable. But not knowing your model, I cannot advise for sure.

Record to DVD from Comcast?

If you have an external DVD component recorder and a Comcast DVR, just plug the output from the DVR into the input of the recorder. Then you can record your "My Recordings". Start the DVD recorder, then start the saved event. But you will have to leave it unattended, start it when you are not going to watch for the length of the saved event. If you want to record live, it should work the same, but I have not tried it. Just remember that the DVD recorder will record whatever is playing on the screen, so if you change channels or watch a different recording it will record whatever is playing.


Can a DVD movie be played on a DVR?

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.

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.
