As you flip through the stations of your satellite receiver, you will invariably find a movie listing you have wanted to see but just haven't found the time for. Recording the movie no longer requires a VCR or blank tape, and with a high-definition multimedia interface, or HDMI, cable and HD-DVR, you can save programming directly to the equipment's built-in hard drive.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Connect the HDMI cable into the "HDMI Out" port of your receiver. Although many satellite companies provide DVR service, you can purchase a third-party DVR, such as TiVo.

  2. 2

    Insert the opposite end of the cable into the "HDMI In" port on your HD-DVR.

  3. 3

    Power on the HD-DVR and your satellite receiver. With the HD-DVR receiver's remote control, scroll through the channel listings of the satellite receiver until you find the movie you want to save.

  4. 4

    Press the "Record" button on the HD-DVR's remote control to begin, or set, the recording for your desired movie.
