    Hello.

    Is it possible to output recorded Tivo content to a DVD Recorder as opposed to a VCR? Would I just do the same as I normally would to output to VHS?

    Thanks.

    Potato and pen.
    The TiVo has no way of knowing what it's outputting to. You can feed the audio/video signals into a TV/monitor, a recorder, or a salad dish (if it has the right connections :D ).

    Just treat the DVD recorder as if it's a VCR...but make sure to use a disc and not a tape. ;)

    A couple of VERY novice questions if I may? The resulting recording is it full screen or is it smaller? What I'm asking is does the resulting picture fill the screen like it would if I were watching live or via the TIVO?

    How many 1hr shows can you get on a DVD, 1, 2, or 4?

    Thanks for any reply.

    It records what you see on your TV screen. So, for example, if you pause or FF your Tivo, the DVD-R will record the green progress bar you see on your TV screen.

    Basic Quality: 6hrs on DVD
    Medium Quality: 4hrs on DVD
    High Quality: 2hrs on DVD
    Best Quality: 1hr on DVD

    I see no reason why you can't.
