Default Uverse DVR to my laptop.

I searched but found little info.

Is it possible to use my laptop to burn DVD's of my saved programs from my Uverse DVR? My 9 year old daughter is a Full House freak and has all her favorite episodes saved. She would like them in DVD format.

Yes I do it all of the time. I make DVDs for my wife of recorded shows.

I use a Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR Video Capture device to record the show in HD on my PC. Trying to use the A/V outputs (red-wht-yel) usually will not be successful because of the Macrovision that does not occur with the component outputs the 1212 uses.

After I have the program recorded I then can cut out the commercials with a program called "h.264 TS Cutter" available as a download via a google search.

Finally I burn the DVD with a program called convertXtoDVD. It authors the DVD and burns it all in one pass.

Thank you for your response.

Will a less expensive product such as http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSit...eator+Plus.htm work?

Maybe, but I would suspect you will run into the Macrovision problem since that connects through the A/V outputs. Also if you use the A/V outputs you need to set the receiver to output 480i Standard Definition.
