Is there a way of transferring recorded programmes from my HD box onto either a PC or DVD?
i think the only way is to have a dvd recorder attached to the sky box
Same as above. But there's a lot of stuff that cannot be copied due to copyright.
The only time I've known the Copy function not work is for PPV i.e. Box Office stuff, and stuff off Anytime ie Lost with no on screen channel logos and adverts.
Remeber you can not watch anything eslse whilst doing this - so set it up before work/bedtime etc.
Thanks all. Following on from the last post, does the copying take quite a long time then?
It takes as long as the programme or film you want to record takes to play - you can only record it in real time.
All you need is an S-Video cable and run it from the output on back of HD box to a PC with a TV card that accepts analogue S-Video in input (You can pick these up from about £30). Then you can record directly to your PC.
If you are wanting to use the record to DVD function sky suggests you need a DVD Rewriter, but I think you will agree the most efficient method is to send it to a PC first.
