I have been asked to tivo/dvr a show for my brother, how do I transfer the show from the dvr to a computer so as to copy it to a CD/DVD?

Is there some place that I could go to on the web to do this show me how to do so?

thanks for your help...

It's going to depend on your DVR model.

You basically have two options. First, you could figure out instructions specific to your DVR model that would allow you do pull files directly off of it. Most of the time, that involves removing the hard drive and hooking it up to your PC, but some are easier than that.

The other option would be to just run video output cables from your DVR to your computer. You'll need a video card with video-input capabilities, though.

If you have a Tivo Series 2, just download TivoServer. For burning, you will need Direct Show Dump and DVD Patcher. Then you can burn it in Nero.
