well i still have an analog SD DVD player, and my computer has a DVD recorder / player. I appreciate the help.

If I had alot of money to spend I'd get a Blue Ray Player / recorder and a 5.1 surround sound system. Gotta live within my means though. The economy stinks and jobs are scarce, and I'm barely getting by.

Hopefully that second Economic Stimulus Package proposal passes. I got the money for my HDTV from the first one.

So whats the best S-video cable for the money? Does gold plated really make a difference? Should I get one with built in audio cables (3 way)?

So if I record the show from my HD DVR to their SD DVD recorder it will get downconverted to SD? And I'll still be able to play it on my regular SD DVD player or my SD DVD player on my computer?

I want to make a copy of The Tonight Show that we attended for a keepsake like i said. We drove to California from Michigan in a rentral car when gas prices were almost 4 dollars a gallon and stayed in like 10 hotels and ate in resturants every day so I think we paid enough to get around their copyright protection and we deserve to have a copy. We were also both unemployed at the time and still are so the credit cards companies are about to sue.

I know this may be a bit late for the OP, but for others that wander here looking for a method to get content from their HD DVRs to a computer, I use the Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR Video Capture device. Basically you play the program and the box records the HD signal via component connections. Work great for archiving.

LOL, this is true!

BTW Blu Ray Recorders will be very expensive.
Average price wil be from 800.00 up.
I do want to get one, but dam that's expensive.
I have a HD camcorder, so I could put it to good use.

They ship free, I got the 3 foot gold. Mine cost 4.60 yours will be a little cheaper.

Hope this helps.

Correct!

Don't feel bad, alot of people are being sued by greedy cc companies. There is no copyright laws for SD, just HD. Thus the reason for HDMI, to control HD content.

So will it downcovert the show to 4:3? or will it stay in 16:9? How much memory will a 1080i hour long show take up on a SD DVD? I have some blank SD DVD -R disks.

Won't the HD still be compressed?

I want my uncompressed HD! That's why I'm switching from Com(pressed)cast to DirecTV.

You will have the bars on the top, and bottom.
But the picture still looks really good.

I use DVD-R also, when I record my personal videos they are in 16.9.

You can google how long it will take up on a SD DVD.

Well my picture looks fantastic, but then I have a HD camcorder. If you start out with a better pq, you should end up with a better pq.

When I look at my downconverted DVD with my upconvert DVD recorder it looks almost as sharp as the HD pic.

Peace Out!

All broadcast HD is compressed. Whether it be from OTA, Directv, Dish, Comcast, etc.
