There’s a Scart input, which allows you to hook up other AV gear – old VCRs for example – and record them onto Blu-ray or DVD. Theoretically the scart output from the Humax should connect to that.
The built-in disc drive can record onto BD-RE, BD-R (single and dual layer), DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-R DL and DVD-RW platters.
You can’t record directly onto a disc as everything goes on the hard disk first then has to be copied to disc afterwards. It gives you a chance to edit out bits you don’t want and label it all up properly before recording it to DVD.
