How do I transfer HR22-100 recorded programs to DVD's for watching on a PC?

I wiil obviously have to buy a compatible HD DVD Recorder/Player or BlueRay R/P to do this.  So my question is this; have any of you found and used a compatible R/P to actually do this?  And if so, what was the brand and model?

Just found this information that seems to disagree. I'm not an expert in this area, so can shed some light on this?

Simple... you RECORD at DVD resolution

 

>1080p upconversion via HDMI

 

You PLAY at "near HD quality" by means of an "upconversion" process inside the box... IF your TV has an HDMI connection

 

Nowhere does it say you may record BluRay (true HiDef) on a DVD

 

ALSO... be aware that some (most?) DVD recorders will NOT record if the original recording on your DVR has a "do not record" flag

Thank you for the explination.  No problem with the flag.  All i want to do is get all the 1 to 2 years old news reports my wife insists on keeping until see can transcribe them off the DVR.  Then she can do it on her PC.  I don't know why DIRECTV can't mod thier boxes to just download the recordings to a PC direct via wifi or ethernet connections.

 

DIRECTV says you can record to an external hard drive.  Can you then connect that external drive to a PC and play the recordings on the PC?

Nope.  Recordings on the drive are encrypted to the DVR hardware.  Can't be exported anywhere.

No, and No

 

DirecTV will never "mod" their boxes to allow transferring their recordings to a PC, since DTV is a follower of DRM (Digital Rights Management) which is imposed by the Movie Studios and TV Networks specifically to not allow copying their content

 

DTV does write that content to the hard drive in your DVR, but only for playback to a TV, not to a computer

 

All recordings are encrypted to the DVR that made the recording (a "code chip" on the DVR motherboard) so not only may you not play external drive recordings on a PC, you may not even connect that drive to a different DVR and play the recording

Anybody have a recommendation for a DVD recorder/player compatible with the HR22?

Any DVD Recorder/Player will be compatible with the HR22.  I suggest you check out the appropriate Forum at http://www.avsforum.com where you can find recommendations and ask questions.

Dubob is right to be concerned, at least in my opinion.  User djdicetn, who records mountains of programming, tells me that some DVD recorders have a super sensitive copy protection system which makes them impossible to use for this purpose.

Would the Toshiba D-R560 fall into that group.  It is highly rated by Consumer Reports.  However, the references to it on the AVS Forums are from 2008.

I do a ton of recording from DVRs to DVD recorders and I would recommend either Magnavox or Panasonic recorders over the Toshibas because both have more flexibility in recording times. If that doesn't matter to you then the Toshiba would be fine.
