    Ah, this forum is really for the integrated TiVo/DVD systems, not for using an external DVD burner with a standard TiVo.

    But, in short, you need to connect the A/V outputs on the TiVo to the A/V inputs on the DVD recorder. Then you can simply Play the shows on the TiVo, or use the Save to VCR function, and then record on the DVD recorder just as you would with a VCR.

    As for DVD formats, etc, that depends on what you recorder supports, the TiVo doesn't enter into it.
