Hello all,

I just subscribed to MTS Ultimate TV, and was wondering how I can record the content stored on my PVR to my computer to burn DVD's, or do I need to hook up a separate DVD recorder? I want to be able to save rugby games (I subscribe to Setanta sports) on a DVD format so I can take them to the school I work/coach and watch them with my players at school. My understanding is that I cannot simply disconnect my MTS box and take it to the school.

Is there any way I can accomplish this?

For reference, my MTS box is plugged into an Onkyo HTRC260 for both video and audio conversion, and then through to my older Advent 34" widescreen HD tube tv.

The tv, actually, is the same one mentioned here (http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?p=85188) and I must say it's served me very well, although I will be upgrading to a 55+" LED in the next 18 months or so.

Several years ago I bought an earlier version of this device at Costco.
http://www.adstechnologies.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=2

It has S-Video and audio jacks on the back to get input from the set-top box, and a USB connector to send output to my laptop computer. The CapWiz program included with this device will capture and save the resulting video file. I then use other software to convert that video file into DVD format, and then burn it to DVD-R.

p.s. It seems the newer version will record directly to DVD

You can also use a TV tuner in your computer if you have one. These methods will only give you Standard Definition (SD) video.

If you want HD, you will need something like the Hauppauge HDPVR which is discussed in the HTPC forum.
