I hope that someone in the forum is able to figure this out for me. My objective is to offload some of my SD and HD recordings to another medium so that I can have room to record new material. I own a JVC HM DH40000U DVHS tape recorder, but it only allows for 4 pin firewire connections to record HD. The Tivo HD DVR is connected to my TV using the component out connectors. How can I get my HD and SD recordings into my JVC deck? Or should I give up on the JVC deck and get something else? If you suggest something (like an external hard drive) I'll need some guidance as to how to set that up also. I do need the component out from my Tivo to connect to the TV. Help!!!!
