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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
