How to record from Direct Tv to my dvd /vcr recorder Sony
Hi alcaponemafioso, thank you for your advice on 12/5/2008
When you wrote it's very simple process to record from a Directv onto DVR recorder, I could not believe you, I tried it and it worked. This is what you adviced it.
it's a very simple process to record your Directv DVR content onto DVDs. 1) connect your DVR to your DVD recorder using an RCA (composite AV cable, marked with colors of red, white and yellow, 3 cables attached to each other), output from DVR to input of DVD recorder, using any available input on DVD recorder, usually marked input 1, input 2, and perhaps input 3, depending what kind of recorder you have. 2) using DVD recorder's remote control switch the input on your DVD recorder to the corresponding input which you have connected composite AV cable to the input on the back of your DVD recorder, this will sync DVR through your DVD recorder's channel. This method is similar to as if you'd connect your VCR to the TV and setting VCR's channel to CH 3. In modern DVD technology, the principle remains the same except CH 3 was replaced by input 1, input 2, input 3, AV in, etc. While you're recording the DVR content, you must stay on it until you finish recording. Otherwise if you change the channel on directv DVR, then it will record whatever is on your TV. I'm trying to say that this recording procedure is not the same as if you were recording a tv program onto your DVR and being able to watch something else while recoding a program from another channel. I'm not trying to edify either but only to be as specific and instructive as possible, so others can understand the principals of recording DVR's content onto DVD media. Please let me know if you succeed. Although the model of your DVR should have an "antena out to TV" that you can connect your DVR to DVD recorder using coaxial cable. It's the same kind of cable as it runs from your sat. Dish to the back of your DVR. Only in this case you would need to set the VCR/DVD input to Channel 3, to interact with DVR. Video quality is not as good as connecting through composite AV cables.
