Default From DVR to DVD?

My DVR fills up very quickly with all the HD shows and movies I record. How could I copy recorded programs to DVDs to free up space on my DVR?

About the only way to do it is to run cables from your DVR to the input on your DVD burner, hit play on the show you want to record off the DVR, and have it stream to your DVD burner. There's no automated way to do it. Unfortunately this will tie up your DVR while you're doing that (won't be able to watch anything else at the time).

One kinda creative way around this - get the multi-room DVR, and hook up your DVD burner to an STB in another room. That way you can record the recording off THAT STB while you can watch something else off your main TV.

Although, a word of caution - many shows now are getting copy protected, and you won't be able to record them to DVD.

Now if you use older DVD Recorders with S-video input. I use DVDRW method then you can bring over the VOB and you can do the rest on the PC in realtime save. That's if you really want to do this. DVD Recorders that can do this are still available. Just have to search online.

Are you saying I should use an older DVD recorder to bypass copy protection?

I don't know what this sentence means. Care to translate for a newbie? Thank you.

Does FIOS have DVR expanders that you can add storage on to your box?
