i currently have a tivo and boy it fills up fast.(140 series2). now i'm in the dilemma of how to get it to dvd. i could dump it onto my camcorder, then to
the computer--i think . i haven't actually done it before. i'm thinking it's going
to be a big chore. plus getting all the commercials out is going to be a hassle.

for future recordings:

would using the "all in wonder" be just as good and make commercials editing and burning to dvd easier?

or maybe the easiest is just to get the pioneer dvd/tivo soulution and dump big chunks at a time, commercials and all (would be a nice time capsule effect, 20 years later).

comments appreciated.

bosn,

You may want to consider upgrading your Tivo Series2 with more capacity. Instructions for doing this can be found right here; if you need any assistance, you can find it on this forum.

Tivo has announced a new feature called "Tivo2Go" which will be in the software upgrade coming to all Series2 Tivos this fall. Tivo2Go will allow you to wireless stream recordings from the Tivo to your PC for viewing or burning to DVD, using your PC's DVD burner. There will be no additional cost for this software update; part of your Tivo service fee goes toward developing new Tivo software with new features.

whoa,
that looks like alot to dig into. that's what i was hoping to avoid.
i just want something simple and easy. if i could find a shop that could add a
hard drive for me for 50 buck i might do that.

having other troubles with the tivo unit going black and white all the time.
may need to return it. so maybe for the next unit.

bosng,

You said you were considering an "All in Wonder." I consider the use and installation of that card about on part with the complexity level of a Tivo drive upgrade.

You're certainly right that a DVD recorder with built-in Tivo would be the simplest solution, although I would go for one of the new Toshiba DVD recorders with Tivo, rather than the Pioneer. These are due out any day now. Keep in mind that you won't get more than two hours on a DVD at good quality; you can fit three or four hours at a lower quality setting, if quality isn't a big concern.
