USB to RCA to DVR
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Newest-Video-AV-Cable-to-TV-RCA-USB-Charger-iPad-2-3-iPhone-4-4S-iPod-Touch-/350886216789?pt=US_Tablet_AV_Cables_Adapters&hash=item51b272c455
can I use this cable to connect the USB out of my PC to the inw/ RCA my DVR
so I can record and edit internet movies?

Back in the olden days when my laptop had a S video out I used to connecet
Out of LT w/ S video (for video) and out of LT headphone w/ 3.5MM line
Y-ed w/ 2 RCA connecters for audio to my DVR.

Then I’d record and edit internet movies.
Thanks for any advice STB

are you trying to record movies to post on the internet (like from vhs) or record movies that are already on the internet? if its the second one you should just use software or a browser extension to copy and save them.

that is definitely not what you want. that's to transfer media from a pc to a idevice, and then connect the idevice to a standard def tv.

I'm wanting to record movies that are allready on the net. instead of downloading.

this way I can record then pause then record thus edit what I want to record and not take a chance on catching a virus involved w/ downloading.

There are lots of ways to achieve the same without catching a virus.

A) Anti-virus software
B) Machine dedicated to downloading that is isolated from the rest of the house network.
C) Downloading from trusted sources, i.e. legal downloads.

that site works great for me. on my netbook i have an extension built right into the browser. i also have used youtube video downloader.

with how youre trying to capture, do you have two pcs or are you trying to output and capture on the same machine?

Your chances of actually getting a virus from a movie is already pretty unlikely.

A virus included with a movie would have to exploit a vulnerability of a specific media player.

Your logic about playing it back in the browser > record = safety from virus is partially wrong. Yes the resulting file would likely be stripped of whatever included exploits however the video plugin on the browser could have been the target they were trying to exploit anyhow.
