    I have yet to buy a DVD Recorder so in the meantime, I was wondering if it is possible to copy from my Sky + Box direct to the DVD-R on my laptop ?

    I only have USB & RS232 connectors on the back of my laptop.

    If anybody knows if this is possible, I would be grateful for any help or advice on this ?

    Many Thanks

    you'll need to get a USB TV capture card, preferably with S-video so you can take advantage of that output on the sky+ box, and some capturing software. You'll need to copy the recorded material to the hard drive (on the laptop) first, then you'll be able to burn it off.
