Hi there
I brought my fvrt145 just over two weeks ago and I'm pretty happy with it (apart from of course the stupid features, or should I say none features like noisy hard drive, no series link, stupid pink coloured wavey line, no button to see how far you are into/time left of the program, and the god awefull controller - I mean come on, who really puts a channel up and down button with 3 buttons in between??????)

anyway, my question is
Can I extract the Video footage (and audio with it) from the hard drive?
Will I just need a simple lead to connect the serial port to my PC?
This is so I'll be able to make some DVD's of the programs ive recorded (i'll use Nero Vision for this)
Can anyone tell me if this is possible?
If so where can i buy this lead (a link would be appreciated)
and what are the files encoded in? MPEGS?

thanks a lot

thanks for that, I really dont want to open my pvr up, so I'll probably just give it a miss.
Unless anyone knows another way of doing it

Hippo, having buttons in between the ch up and down is annoying I agree BUT why not just stop using them. I don't use ever use them, I just press the ok button so the 'now and next' comes up, then I just keep going left or right through the channels till I see something I want to watch, then press ok again so it goes to that channel. I've always done this with my telewest box too. Why not give it a try, you might be amazed you even bothered with ch up/down buttons :thumbsup:

Once you really get to use a PVR you will not even be changing channels. Just selecting recordings from the library most of the time. :D

hey
yeah, thats what i do, but still.....its sooooooooo annoying.
Who designed that remote anyway? a" "(space left for your own derogatory comment)
:hiya:

p.s. IS there a button you can press to see how much of a film is left/how long you've been watching without having to press PAUSE quickly?

Afraid not hippo. Obviously designed by a mere male as even this being able to pause live TV for 30 mins so you can answer the phone etc is useless.....who on earth is EVER on the phone for only 30 mins!! We need a minimum 3 hour pause please :D
