Is this possible? I see on my torrent sites that its being done. I would like to contribute and keep dvd `s for grand kids. Help !!
DVDs are std def (480i) and will convert your HD DVR files to std def ("DVD quality")..
One option is a standalone std def box like the Magnavox 53x Series HDD/DVD recorder. See the help file subject "Copying from a DVR...." here.
Click any of the buttons or text links on that page (top, bottom or in between subjects) to go to the main list of info and help files on the Mags.
P..S. You'd better leave them the recorder you buy or a DVD player with those DVDs... they're all becoming obsolete!
The Mag 53x Series is most likely the last of the breed in the DVD (std def) world.
You could also look into copying them to your computer with on-board DVD recorder and approp. SW to copy video files and create DVDs, but then those are also going to be obsolete in the grandkid age... might have to leave them your computer, with instructions on how to use a keyboard... no "mind-meld" or "gesture" operations for that old computer!

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine
Yeah I forget that the Mini has a weird usb/lan output format.
With the original you can copy the files to your PC and then just to burn a DVD or a Blu-Ray (if you want).
