I download and watch some TV programmes that I missed.That works fine, but I sometimes would like to save the programme to a DVD to keep.If I recorded the programme to VHS as it was being broadcast I would be able to transfer to a DVD no problem.I don't seem to be able to do that with these programmes downloaded from 4oD.
That's because they have DRM to prevent people keeping them forever. click here
brundle, thanks for that. I guess if I had recorded it off air on to a VHS tape it would be analogue and therefore, not subject to DRM.
Should also have said that I download music CDs and single tracks from Tesco.They have DRM protection but Tesco allow me to make up to 3 copies and also if I lose a file I can download it again.
I downloaded a TV program from there intending to put it onto my Samsung but it was protected in some way and won't let me convert it to a Samsung format. Won't let me copy it to DVD either.You could record the programs digitally, ie through a PVR with a HDD and then copy to DVD - I've NEVER had a problem with doing that on any program any channel.I think you'll have to regress to your old ways of recording stuff you want to watch again and again.
Buy a PVR, I recommend the Liteon, have had mine for a few years now, it records everything to hdd, then eats any kind of media DVDR CD DVDRW + or - etc.You can choose what to keep and what to bin.Mine is an older model without built in freeview, but the newer ones have this installed.I just connect mine to my TV which has the freeview built in, and record from there.click hereOne at the top is mine, newer models available :)
I added this response some time ago but it doesn't seem to show up!crosstrainer, I have a Toshiba DVD recorder with 160gb hard disc and also a VHS Video recorder.Unfortunately, I can't watch TV 24 hours so I miss a few programmes that I would like to watch.I do a catch up on 4oD, but of course, had I recorded them at the time of the broadcast I could have them on HDD, DVD or VHS.
