I have saved many Beyond 2000 programs on my HD-DVR and am running out of room. I don't want to loose these programs...I use them in teaching my college classes.


Does any one know an easy to copy them to a DVD or to a hard drive? If so, please be as detailed as possible.

You can't save to a hard drive, but you can use a DVD Recorder. Not sure exactly how its done, but it should be like a VCR.

You have 2 options:


1)  Connect a DVD recorder to the Composite out of the DVR.  Find program, push play on it and immediately push record on the DVR.  Voila - recorded program


2) Buy a Haupaugue HD-PVR (Model 1212).  It takes a COMPONENT! signal in and stores it as a 1080i or 720p HD signal with up to 5.1 surround sound!  Then they have a program to burn them to DVD IN HIGH DEF!  About $210 on Amazon
