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
