    Default DVD Burning with PVR Receivers


    Does anyone have an idea about DVD burning with a PVR Receiver with Hard Drive?
    Has anyone succeeded with any particular PVR?
    Thanks in advance.

    Madness-that's not the only thing you can get from a satellite TV-there is lot to learn-DW tv offers very good German language programs ideal for German speaking beginners.
    TV5 offers French language programs again good for learners. These are ideal when your children study these at school.
    The porn DVDs you can buy for 1 $ each.
    So why waste your $.

    depends on what format your pvr records them, mostly in mpeg2 anyway, so yes, you can transfer the same file to your pc, then burn away with your favorite dvd authoring software. default will be nero.

    as for pron... well..... you can even get it for free, no need to subscribe.

    In many PVR receivers it is recorded in an unknown format so that it cannot be encoded.
    Has any one used a PVR receiver for DVD authoring?

    I got a very good answer. This receiver records and allows you to create DVDs too. Have a look Mr Big Pumpkin !

    dvb-s is in mpeg2 stream, so i deduced that most dvrs will record in RAW format, that means, the same mpeg2 stream without any conversion. and the same mpeg2 stream can then be burned to dvd directly. others, of course will record in dvr-ms format, etc.

    now, if you can clarify which "unknown" format you are referring to, everyone else will be enlightened. there are boxes, especially the paid PVR services wherein you cannot even view the recorded episodes on your HDD if your subscription has expired.

    unfortunately some of these PVR enabled receivers put some propriety copyright restriction on the recorded content.

    i agree that the format is mpeg2 but when you take that HDD out of your STB and connect it to your PC, windows OS fails to read the files.

    i have tried different ways but windows doesnt even show you if any files exist on that HDD.

    Hi Guy,
    How is your Manhattan Plaza ST 550 ?
    Are you satisfied with it?
    In what format it is recording?
    Can you burn DVDs by connecting it to a computer?
    Regards

    dear felicianf

    plazaST550 is a good receiver for PVR , the quality is superb.

    however there are restrictions on PVR functionality that applies to almost all such receivers with single tuner, which are:

    1) while recording you are only able to watch another channel if it is from
    the same transponder frequency. not from another transponder.

    2) the above is only true for FTA channels.

    3) you cannot record and at the same time view another channel if you are
    recording an encrypted channel. you can only record,pause, rewind or
    forward it.

    4) Manhattan only allows 100 programs to be recorded, whatever the HDD
    capacity. not good if you record short programs or songs. i have for
    example recorded 100 songs and still have 56% disk remaining, when i try
    to record something else now, i get a message "hard disk is full"

    5) to rectify #4 i have to delete some programs.

    6) when i connect the PVR disk to my PC to download programs, windows
    doesnt read or see the files on this HDD. i only see a hard disk which
    shows some used space but no files.

    Did alot of research on master slave disk setups to try and read, nothing
    works. also browsed on some UK and australian satellite forums where Manhattan is discussed, they all have the same issue and no one has been able to read the HDD.

    since i have showtime i have asked them about its specs, but my information is it too doesnt allow export.

    thanks for your time

    PC DVB cards provide best solution for recording and burning DVDs.

    i second that, but i killed 3 hdds because of recording. it seems pc hdd's are not that good in handling the continous spinning at long hours, lol. or it could be my western digital hdd were at fault? replaced it with maxtor and still alive till today.

    there are specific PVR hdd if you want to do it for recording, a bit pricey but performance should be much better.

    one more thing to try of course is to play your recorded films and have it captured on the pc.

    Record it, then use SUPER DVD RIPPER (search and download) to record MPG to a DVD.
