Can't be done the way you stated the problem, but certainly can be done other ways.
- Realtime playback to DVD or blu-ray recorder
- Realtime playback to video capture device on a computer
Back when I had DirecTV, I would typically pop in a blank DVD, start playback, go to bed, and my disc is done the next morning. I backed up hundreds of recordings that way. If you're so inclined, you could then rip the DVD and store on your PC for remote viewing DLNA or some other means. I rarely bothered doing that. But if you do, you could even reuse the same DVD-RW over and over.
I think DVD is usually sufficient even for HD. Making and SD DVD from an HD source results in PQ on par with commercial DVDs. All my backups look very good.
