Hi, I'm Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert. Well, you've got the Laverne and Shirley marathon from Nick at Nite recorded on your DVR, digital video recorder, and you want to put it onto a DVD so you can have forever. Well, I'm going to show you how to do that. Well, first off you can get DVR's or TiVo brands with DVD burners built right into em', but if you don't have that luxury and you do have a DVD burner; obviously a prerequisite for what we're talkin' about, then we're going to show you how to hook it up and then record it afterwards, okay. Here's what we want to do. Your DVR is going to have a video out. That's a guarantee, because well, that's how it gets the information out of the machine and onto your television set. So sometimes, even if we are going to be tricky we can take it and not see it on our TV but see it in here, and take another line out to a monitor, or once we matrix it through you can see it through the DVD burner. So, now it does come out in a lot of different ways here, but we need to decide what is coming into our burner up top here. Our burner will only accept; while it does have S-video, component, and composite it will only accept component as an input, so we're going to respect that and go component to component. All right, line out video; we're going to use our RCA cables here. You want to use some decent quality dub cables. These are not. Just for demonstration purposes. But we're going to go right channel audio red, left channel audio white, and yellow for our video source. Now, we're coming out and that's what this cable will do here. We're going to come into our DVD burner up at the top, and we're going to follow that same procedure. It's going to be white for left channel audio, red for right channel audio, and yellow for video. Now we've got it all set up, okay. Now basically, all we have to do is put our blank DVD media into our DVD burner, and here is your proper dubbing procedures, okay. Now, my DVR actually has this built into it where it'll actually when you're doing a dub; it's prepared for dubs, it's not a unitized thing, so it's I'm hooking it up this way, but when it's preparing for dubs it'll actually do a countdown and that you know, five, four, three, two, one, and that's where I unpause on my recorder. If yours doesn't have it here's the trick, okay; is to set your DVD record and pause, and now you want to back up your DVR about five seconds, push play or unpause it, five, four, three, two, one, unpause, record, and your get a nice clean dub. And you can follow that same procedures if you're trying to eliminate commercials for it too. So, when dubbing from your DVR to a DVD as a burner you can follow standard dub procedures like that. Good luck with it. I'm Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert, sayin' we'll stream ya' later.
