I would think one of the objectives of an HD programming board would be just that. Recording Movies onto a DVS tape or DVD-R. It seems that there is a dearth of postings alerting great HD movies to possibly record at critical times. And do not bring up DVR- you can't keep that on media-sorry fella -I want to access it 6-12 months from now. Hell maybe people just watch and don't record. Vex's me.
