      Recording to DVD recommendation

      Hi,

      Needing to get a unit to transfer the Amstrad Sky+ box HD recordings to. Sorry if I'm a bit dim, but can I buy basically any DVD (or Freeview/DVD combo) recorder and they'll happily talk to each other?

      Cheers

      Yes you can, you connect your DVD recorder with a scart lead to your Sky box.
      Its a good idea to get one with a freeview tuner to future proof yourself a bit.

      Thanks for the encouragement - I wonder if the copy function of the SKY box is in real time or as e.g. with a PC?

      Anyway - hopefully, soon to find out!

      Cheers

      It's in real time.

      If you plan to record only one thing at a time it may be worth just playing the prog and then you can start the DVDR just as the prog starts and stop it when it ends.

      One of the downsides of using 'copy' when recording multiple progs is that it records all the junk at the beginning, middle and end of each one. For e.g. a disc with 6x 1Hr shows could also have about 2 hours of unwanted stuff on it. Not a problem though if the progs are of the 'watch once and delete' variety.

      Thanks for that - I'm hoping to offload a series of progs onto DVD, so hopefully the DVD will also have something like x30 for scooting through the ads etc.

      Cheers
