Saving Sky+ Programmes

  t160v 12:20 15 Jun 2009

I have Sky+ and have recorded loads of films and programmes for the kids.
We are moving house and don't want a Sky dish on our new home but want to keep and watch the programmes we have recorded on the Sky+ box. I'm aware that without the subscription to Sky the programmes recorded on the Sky+ box will not be viewable.
Can I buy a DVD or Disc recorder and plug that between the Sky+ box and tele and record the programmes that way, is there any Sky wizardy that prevents this?
Can I take the disc out of the Sky+ box and stick it in a disk recorder and continue to view the programmes?

I bought a DVD Recorder with a Hard Drive. Using the Sky+ Copy command you can daisy chain a number of programmes to copy (upto the limit imposed by you recorder). I then set up the Copy overnight. Using a DVD/HDD Recorder allows you to copy potentially more than a single DVD. You can then copy them to DVD if you so wish.
