    How do I connect my Sky+ to my DVD recorder & safely record from Sky+ to a DVD disc?

    Also can I copy what I've saved on the Sky+ box (to watch later) to a DVD at anytime?

    CHEERS

    Sky+ doesn't have component output. You have the choice of RGB from the TV scart, or composite from the VCR scart, or a separate s-video output. You copy by playing out to the DVD as if watching the recording. You can do this anytime, as long as you don't want to do anything else. I tend to do my copying overnight.

    Where is the best place to buy +R/RW discs? Are there any issues (other than the obvious) with choosing between +R/RW? I mean compatibility etc?

    I've used many suppliers over the years for CD and DVD supplies but in my experience the best trade-off between price, reliability, delivery speed and customer service has to be www.bigpockets.co.uk
