Get TiVo or DVR service. Once you get it, you will never go back to VCRs and tapes. I promise.

VCR's do not have the resolution needed for HD, but a DVR should be able too. Just check the specs of the DVR vs your service to make sure it will handle what your pushing into it.

Depends on your provider. I do my DVR service through Cox Communications in Vegas and there's a feature built into the DVR that allows you to take your recorded shows and transfer them to tape. I believe you need to have the right cords too (I've never tried it myself). I don't see any reason why there would be a distinction between HD and non HD programs as far as going to tape. I wouldn't recommend it, given that tape was designed well before HD came into existence and the two technologies probably don't mesh well, but I'm not an expert in that sort of thing so I can only speculate.

TiVo

TiVo is practically non-existant everywhere in the world apart from the US. The people I know in the UK who has TiVo have imported theirs from the US.

Yes, its called a DVR. Big grin

Look for DVR's that have a DVD recorder on it. A DVR has a HDD but there are a few that also have a dvd recorder that you can record to either in addition or after the fact.

I believe most brands have their version, you just have to look. But again, check specs to make sure it will actually record at a high enough rate for what you are after.

Take it easy

If you have a laptop computer with an S-Video port, you can get yourself a TV Tuner (called PVR's here in the US) for about US$80 and record whatever you're watching directly to the hard drive on your laptop. To view it on another TV, just hook your laptop up to the TV you want to use via the S-Video cable.

The only problem is if you go through a cable box then you are stuck with whatever is on that channel, but this at least gives you an idea whats out there.

Is it not possible to us a TV splitter? One of the lines into the VCR/DVD and one into the TV so you can watch one program and record the other?

If I recall that unit above allows you to record up to two shows or record two shows at the same time...Im not sure, again check specs.

Nonetheless, if you must go through a cable box then your stuck with whatever is showing. On the other hand, some cable providers dvr's can record up to three shows at the same time...

[edit] satelite is a whole 'nother issue and the solution depends on which provider you have. [/edit]

I got cable (just like 95% of the rest in NL). I have put my splitter into the wall socket. From the splitter one cable goes to the TV and one cable goes to the DVD-burner. I record one programme and watch another. Maybe that is just specific for NL though and does not work elsewhere.

My expereince in consumer products is next to nill. And even less when talking about foriegn standards. I can only talk about the few experiences I have expereinced in my region which is:

We had a cable provided dvr that allowed us to record up to three stations simultaniously. if only recording two stations, then you could watch any chanel otherwise if you are recording three then you were limited to watching those three.

We had a dvr that did not go through a cable box and that one was limited to recording two stations simultaniously with the same restrictions as above

On the cable provided DVR you did not have a means to record to a DVD on its own, never tried to burn a dvd after the dvr.

Your route works too as long as you dont have to go through a cable reciever, but most of the options listed above give you the same option as you are stating but in a cleaner configuration.

And thats about all I know...
