Hello, Im trying to import some HD video which is public domain content, no copy rights on it, off of my Verizon DVR. Does anyone know the best way to do this while still keeping the content HD?

With the Motorola DVR offered by FiOS, you can also use a PC to record content from local channels via Firewire, as it is played. Instructions for that can be found this thread. Note this only works for the local (including locals in HD) and public interest channels on FiOS; this does not work for any FiOS cable channels.

The TivoHD (and discontinued TiVo Series3) is the only DVR that lets you actually login to the DVR and download SD and HD recordings to your computer over your home network.

THANKS FOR YOUR QUICK REPLY!

I guess I might want to give more info since you seem to know more than me

Heres the scoop.
The movie is Kidco 1984 which hasnt been released onto DVD and is public domain content, or thats what I read. Right now I have it set to record to DVR, it plays on the 25th at 130pm est on HBO Family HD

My setups are either
Macbook with 10.5.6 (barebones with software but I can put it on if need be)
XP SP3 pro (not MCE) with USB hookups, its a mini itx, no PCI or PCI-E slots, best I got is USB


The ways I would think this can be done is like this, but of course this is my limited knowledge on the subject
1. Get some kind of adapter that does component to usb and stream the movie that way, but then getting the DD 5.1 off is another problem
2. Somehow hook up the DVR HDD to the PC and rip it off, but Im pretty sure this is not possible
3. The way you mentioned

If you could further assist me on this I would be very appreciative

Thank you so much for helping

HBO content is normally encrypted and copy protected since it is a premium subsription channel so there may be no way to get it off of your STB

Thanks for the reply

So it looks like unless I can somehow stream it while its playing the best best is to DVR it then get a Component Video capture box and do that?
