    Hi all....

    An idiot question but is it possible to send the digital format recording direct from my SKY+ box (Amstrad) to my computer so that I can write the recording to DVD? (Rather than going down to Analog/SCART and then through the A-to-D capture card)

    Thanks in advance.....

    Nope.

    The first gen PACE box can be SDI modified and that output fed to a SDI card in the PC and that I believe is the only way to do what you want.
    Infact I think some of the Battlestar Galactica captures (off SKY1) were done in this method.
