I have an older RCA Direct TV PRV with Composite A/V outputs and Toslink audio output and a Direct TV HD10-250 High Definition PVR with Component Video Out and Toslink audio out. I would like to archive shows I've recorded to the DVD-R on my computer. I want to be able to play the computer-recorded DVD's on my home theater DVD player at a later date. My first choice would be all digital 480p or 720p with Toslink audio (my computer has a digital audio input) and second would be S-Video and Toslink audio and third would be composite A/V. Any help with hardware and software would be appreciated.

i bought an Airlink tv tuner card on sale at frys for $39. it has s-video/composite and antenna inputs. i use s-video from my voom box and the airlink card captures it fine. only 2 channel sound though. you can then edit the capture and burn it to dvd. i just bought a pioneer 420H at costco to make the process a little simpler and faster but the airlink card works fine if your patient.
basically your limited to 480i and 2 channel sound though.
