I have a directv HD DVR. I sometimes record entire seasons of shows in HD, or movies. instead of recording say, a full season of "House," watching it, deleting it, then buying the season a year later for $40, I would like to just be able to burn the episodes of House from my DVR onto blu ray discs, or burn movies onto blu ray disc.


That is to say I want to burn the 1080i films and series onto blu ray discs. Some have said in the past that I'd be better off just getting a DVR with more storage, that's not really what I'm looking for. Storage isn't entirely the issue. I just want to put things on a disc.


So what type of "player" or machine do I need to get in order to do this?

to do it right you need to buy the hauppauge dvr recorder box that converts the component output and optical output of your DVR into a digital stream connected via USB to your computer. The box come with arcsoft video capture software. you must then record at a minimum of 13 Mbps bitrate to have it look exactly like it does on your DVR. For a one hour program, it may fit on a doublelayer DVD disc (8.5GB). you will need to have the software save it as a .ts file. Then you will have to use tsmuxer to remux the file into a bluray disc file format, and then use IMgburn to burn it onto the disc. Please be advised that it takes a very fast computer to be able to capture the video and 5.1 sound on anything over an 8 Mbps bitrate. My hauppauge box is sitting here doing nothing while i ponder buying a new computer that is faster than what i have so i can encode at a higher bitrate. on my current laptop, a 2Ghz centrino computer, encoding over 8Mbps uses 100% of the cpu and causes stuttering and skipping in the file product.


here is a link to it on amazon:
