So here is my question...
Does a DVR exist that will not only save movies from my TV programming (Time Warner) but will also allow me to download those movies to a hard drive I can take with me while traveling?
I have a Pioneer DVR 520 with an 80 GB hard drive, it is also a dvd recorder. It is only good for SD, but I used it to copy programs from another dvr hd from the cable company and would bring it along on vacation to hook up to the tv in the rental. I don't know how you'd connect this though to you ipad since this was all in the predigital era.
