Both my smart Panasonic TV and Blu-Ray player have Netflix streaming apps. They're connected by an Onkyo AV Receiver TX-SR309. Is there any way that I can connect a DVR to these components so that I can stream movies in the wee hours of the morning and capture them for DVR replay later?

There is no practical way of doing that. Also, there is no need to capture them in the wee hours to play the next day as those services are on demand.

Ahhh! My high-speed internet has a monthly limit for downloads. From 12AM to 8AM, however, it is unlimited. That's why I'd like to grab the movies in that period. I push the limit each month as it is.

You could use a Sony Streaming player and a Hauppuage HD PVR


The reason this would work is the Sony has Component video outputs and the Hauppauge records from its component video inputs.


You would of course have to "play" the movie from Netflix and record it in real-time.

If you want to record HD from Netflix with the HD-PVR you will have to use the HDMI output as it will not stream HD from the analog components outputs. You need to get a adapter to convert the HDMI signal to analog component and optical digital audio if you want to capture anything more than stereo sound. Here is a link to a adapter that I know will work with the HD-PVR, not all do work.

Also the player must be set to 720P or 1080i for capture in HD to the HD-PVR, it will not work with 1080P resolution.

First of all, thanks to everyone for their replies.


I'm not quite clear here.

Am I hearing that I need to buy:

1) A Sony Streaming Player

2) A Hauppuage HD PVR

3) an adapter for HDMI to analog component output


With this scenario, would I be using my computer as the DVR? How do these things hook together and which device shows me what I'm recording?


Is my current Sony BluRay with Netflix app something different than the Sony Streaming Player?


This seems like a pretty big investment to accomplish what I'd hoped was a simple task.

The Sony player streams Netflix through it's component video output. I know this for a fact because I own one and use the component video output. Granted it's "only" 720p or 1080i

The Haupauge has a pass through so you would not know it's there.


Your Blue-ray only has HDMI output.


The Haupauge PVR only has component video inputs.


So you need a converter like mtallent recommended to use your existing player or a Nexflix player with component video output like I recommended.


Really they are about the same price. I think I paid $70 for the Sony player at Best Buy.

My Sony PS3 and WD Live Hub will only stream SD through the component outputs when playing a HD file on Netflix as reported by the HD-PVR capture program. That is why I have to use the HDMI output from these devices.

Ok, how about directly within a PC?

Rarely used the PC when I was setting this up, the PC Netflix app was so poor and would hardly stream HD that I found the PS3 to work much better. I then got the WD Live player and I like it a lot and find it easier and quicker to use than the PS3. So my setup is the WD Live player HDMI output first goes to a 2X1 HDMI splitter, with 1 output going to My Onkyo AVR onto the DLP 1080P HDTV. The second is connected to the HDMI to component converter and the components and SPDIF optical go to the HD-PVR. This way I can always play to WD Live to my HDTV and whenever I need I can turn on the HD-PVR and record the signal.

If you are streaming to a PC (like U Boob) it should be able to be captured (saved)??

Thanks to everyone for the replies!


I ~think~ I understand now. I need to purchase a Hauppuage PVR and either 1) a Sony Streaming Player or 2) an HDMI to Component video converter. Then, when I get a Netflix movie through my player, it will send the signal to the PVR and then on to the TV.


I've never had a PVR. Is it menu controlled via the TV monitor?

Can I burn recorded movies to DVD for playback on a regular DVD player? If so, how is that done?

Could one use any media streamer that has component video outputs or does it have to be the Sony one? I've been looking into the Sony player you linked to and while the price is very good the unit gets a lot of knocks for its interface (especially the search function for Netflix and Amazon). I've noticed that Roku makes a unit with component video outputs and wonder if that would work as well.
