Hi, I am getting My Sky HDi installed on the 18th Dec and can't wait!!

I currently have a Sony DVD Hard Drive Recorder which I record my programs on to.  I was wondering if when I record a programme or movie and store this on the My Sky decoder, is it possible for this to be transferred to my DVD Hard Drive?  I'm guessing I would have to playback the programme and record it on my Hard drive while watching it at real time, but it would be good if its possible to just transfer it within a matter of minutes

Any information on this would be much appreciated Smile

That is the only solution.

The MySky decoders do have a playlist feature which I find handy when transferring material to my HDD recorder.
Set up a whole lot to transfer at once then set them going overnight and split into separate programs in the morning.
Beats finding time to transfer programs individually.

Thanks for your help.  i didn't think i would be able to simply transfer my recordings across although setting them up to record overnight is a good suggestion, cheers
