Hi all,

I record a few programs like The Walking Dead, Top Gear, F1 and so on but hardly ever get the chance to watch them. If I bought a DVD recorder and recorded these shows to DVD I could watch them on my laptop.

Is it possible to record to DVD from Mysky, and if so, is it possible to record a show already recorded on the mysky hard drive to the DVD?

It was the last time I tried it. I created a playlist on MySky then played it on the TV one afternoon when I was busy, with the DVD recorder set up to record. Unless Sky has set up a way to block this now it should work for you.

Should work, although I understand that Sky applies copy protection to some channels which will block the transfer to the DVD recorder without adding more hardware into the mix. That's one of the reasons I haven't upgraded to MySky.

I have MySky connected to my PC and record all F1 races via a TV capture card.

I then edit each video file and burn onto a DVD.
