I currently have a Sky+ box and a DVD player/recorder, when I want to burn a movie on the sky planner to DVD I just set record on the DVD recorder and transfer from the Sky box by pressing play. Lately my DVD player/recorder is playing up so either I have to replace it or do i? On the same set up as this I have a small form PC running an Intel P4 2800 processor, 1 Gb RAM. So could I connect the Sky box to the PC maybe via the S video output to USB input and record direct to the PC? I could then burn to DVD from the PC in a fraction of the time and also keep the films on the PC's 500Gb disc. I guess I could also play the DVD's from the PC DVD drive but what would be the best media player to do this? as Windows MP doesn't look that good. Any advice on if this is possible and what recording software and media player I would need greatly welcomed. Cheers.
