    Hi guys i have recorded a program on SKY+ but want to keep it. I no longer have a video recorder and haven't yet purchased a DVD recorder. Can i use my PC to record the program from SKY on to a Blank DVD?

    I'm unaware of anyone having done this. If you haven't yet enough dosh for a DVD recorder and are unable to record via PC you could maybe buy a new HDD and swap it out, keeping the old HDD in a box somewhere until you have a DVD recorder.

    Yes, you could buy something like the ADVC-100, but that's £200 and a hassle when you can buy a decent DVD recorder for not much more.

    Hi Deepblue
    If you just want to do this as a one off, then get yourself a budget spec video capture card, around the £30 mark. This will let you use your PC to capture the video and is a good introduction in to PC recording/editing. If you find it suits your requirements then you might find that you dont bother with a standalone DVD recorder, which while more plug and play than a PC, it cannot match the control that a PC gives for editing purposes.

    cheers
