I will be getting a DV-R installed at home soon (using the generic name because it is not TiVo). But is it a fairly simple matter for me to transfer something I recorded on the DV-R to a VHS tape to save space or give to someone else?
On mine, yes.
The TV is hooked to the VCR is hooked to the DVR.
If I want to record what I’ve recorded, I follow these steps:
- Turn TV on to channel 3
- Turn VCR on to channel 3
- Turn DVR/cable box to recorded list
- Start tape
- Play show on DVR
If it was was a TiVo, there is an inbuilt feature which makes transfer to VHS (or DVD recorder) really easy.
Thanks, I just want to know that I can still help out my gadget deficient friends.
