      You should be able to connect the Sky STB to your DVD recorder using a Scart cable. Select the item that you wish to copy & press Play.

      Ensure that the DVD recorder is set to record from the AV input that the Sky STB is connected to.

      You can use the Copy function in the planner. If it is not displayed at the bottom when you select an item in the Planner, use the scroll key, right or left, and press the Green button to start copying. Note that recordings are done in 'real time', so a 2 hour program takes 2 hours. This means you cannot use Sky for any other purpose when the recording is being made.

      I have a HDD/DVD recorder which I can set up to record several programs overnight. A lot more convenient than recording one DVD at a time.

      Thanks for replies,have tried everything so far with no luck.cabling seems ok,but methinks the dvd recorder is not tuned correctly-ie always records channel 5.or nothing at all.when green copy button is pressed-dvdr set to record,nothing happens after select is pressed.any ideas welcomed.Thanks.

      If you disk is actually full that could be causing a problem. Try deleting some programs until you get down to about 15% available. Most programs on Sky, especially films are often repeated. Keep anything like live sport which are not likely to get a repeat.

      When you have done that, try a Sky+ rebuild. Press the Services button, then 001, then Select button. This will take you to the hidden menu, when there, press 7, then Select twice to start the rebuild. When it completes it will be in Standby, leave it for a few minutes then press Sky. Try your recordings.

      Maybe you should consider upgrading the HDD to give you more storage. Disks are expensive at the moment, but when they come down, it is probably worth doing.
