When it comes to our daily lives there is no denying that “busy” is the name of the game. However, this should not be a limiting factor when it comes to enjoying our favorite television programs. While a DirecTV HD DVR is great to have, there is no reason why you should be limited to recording a few shows that you would have to either see over and over or delete so you can record the next one.
By hooking a DVD recorder up to your DVR you can burn your shows to DVD and enjoy them any time you wish. There are a few things that you will need including your DVR, DVD recorder, audio video cables, RCA composite cables and S-video cable.
Make sure that your DVR and DVD recorder are both hooked up properly. The recorder should be hooked to the television. Now, take the S-video cable and run it from the S-video input on the recorder to the S-video input on the television.
Take the composite cables that connect to the DirecTV DVR loose and hook them into the composite cable output on the rear of your DVD recorder. Connect the audio video cables and hook them up to the DVD recorder’s input terminals. Now plug the other ends into the DVR’s output terminals.
You should now be all set to record your shows from your DVR to DVD. Keep in mind that just because you have the ability to record from DVR you should not abuse it. Do not sell or rent out the DVDs to others as this would be a violation of the law.
Also, if you find that your television does not have the necessary inputs or outputs you can always pick up a component hub that will give you the hookups you need. You should also make sure to push the “Record to VCR” button on the DirecTV DVR remote when recording to DVD.
