What's the easiest way to archive Tivo programs that I've recorded to DVD?
I've got a PC with these specs:

Dell Dimension 4500 - 2.8 Ghz Pentium IV
768mb of RAM
ATI Radeon 9600XT with a S-Video out connection
Pinnacle PCTV Pro video capture card with a composite in
8x Sony DRU-530A DVD Burner
Lite-On 52X CD-RW drive
1 Western Digital 36 Gig Raptor 10,000 RPM SATA drive
1 Maxtor 250 Gig 7200 RPM 16mb cache SATA drive
Sound Blaster Audigy 2

Sony HiFi VCR
DirectTV DVR with Tivo (bought at Best Buy about a year ago) - 40 Gig

The computer is in another room, but I could move either unit if needed.
There's a USB port on the back of the Tivo unit (not sure what it's for).
Can it transmit Video/Audio?

Any enlightenment in this area would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Jeff

Based on that fact, you will have to hack the box.

Search this group for Tivo Hacking links and wiki.

Easiest way is to buy a standalone DVD recorder with video inputs, and
treat it like a VCR.

The only other option is to hack your TiVo to allow extraction, which
isn't really 'easy'.

Sorry, I shouldn't say 'only other option'. It's never that simple. You
could also get a capture card for your computer and a DVD+/-R/RW drive. Or
you could get a digital camcorder with and use the FireWire port on your
PC. Or I'm sure there are a hundred other ways, at least... ;)

No, I'd like to archive programs that are already recorded on my Tivo to
DVD. How can I get those programs off my Tivo and onto my computer so that
I can burn them to DVD?

Thanks,

Jeff

Easy way (since you have a video-capture card): Check the manual that
came with the video-capture hardware. Hook up your TiVo to the
video card as if it were a simple VCR - use the analog composite video
and audio connectors. Disadvantage: Signal goes through yet another
digital-to-analog plus analog-to-digital conversion step.

If your TiVo is one of the models that support TiVo-To-Go, use that.

Otherwise investigate http://alt.org/wiki/index.php/TivoHackingLinks

If you really want it easy just get a standalone dvd recorder with a
harddrive so you can take the commercials out. Because "easy" and "media
extraction" aren't even in the same language.
