    I want to know is it possible to transfer programs I've saved on the Sky+ to my PC for editing before burning to DVD ?

    What I want to achieve is to record MTV then pick and choose the vids I want to burn onto DVD for playing in my car

    Is this possible and if it is what do I need in the way of extra PCI cards , leads , and what editing software would be best ?

    Because the information Sky plus saves on the drive is simply the relevent multiplex stream (exactly what is sent to the dish), you cannot do anything other than play the media from the sky box and record it into your pc (as nice as it would be to be able to copy video files via ftp or something).

    So you need any PC video capture device and patience enough to copy stuff over in real time.

    All the data stored on the Sky+ HD is in encrypted format and has to be played back through the decoder. So the only way you can do what you want is to use a video/sound cable from the Sky+ box to a capture device on your PC.

    or record to DVD recorder (if u have one) then copy recorded dvd to computer and use TMPGNC DVD Author and edit the video and make a menu and then burn to DVD.

    thats what we do with recordings of Sky that we want to keep.
