NO,that link shows a composite video>HDMI adapter,that's the wrong item.First confirm which type of video output(other than HDMI) you have on your Roku box.If you have an earlier gen.Roku,you may have Component video output in which case you'll need a Component video>composite/s video converter. If you have composite video output(3.5mm jack connected with a Roku supplied 3.5mm>composite RWY cable to your DVDR.),which i'm assuming
you have,then you'll need a video filter to place between your Roku and your DVDR,the filter will have a composite video input AND output. The filter will enable you to record from Netflix which something that a simple adapter can't do. My best advise is to PM Logic Design and ask him about the "Video Filter",OR look on ebay to see if you can find a Sima CT-2 for sale,OR buy a Grex filter.But according to a lot of Grex user/reviewers,it gives a tooo soft video image,so take that into account if you go for the Grex. There may be others around here who will step in with some other possibilities.
Roku doesn't CP anything,that's not their duty,all the Roku does is pass along CP from the source to the recorder,which then by law must honor the signal.But I can confirm from personal experience that Netflix and Vudu do CP some of their content,but not all of it.I have 'heard' that Amazon CP's some of their content too,but i can't personally confirm it although i wouldn't be surprised if they do.Edited by greaser - 1/20/13 at 7:55am
