HDD Recorder

Hi all, I have a HDD recorder (Thomson DTH 7000e)
with a USB connection for a card reader, could I connect this to my PC via this connection, and would it show up as an external hard drive,could I then use this to download and burn a DVD via my DVD writer?

no harm will come from trying

I don't know if this will help and it doesn't answer your question but I have a TiVo (also made by Thompson) and am in the process of connecting it wirelessly to my PC.

This will enable me to stream recorded programs/films to my PC and burn them to DVD(amongst other things).

Don't know if you can do this with your DVR but it's an idea.

Very interesting, let me know what you do, and how you get on. P.

In all honesty, It will probably take me a while as I can't afford to buy all the bits I need all at once.

If you are interested click here and go to the UK forum. There's loads of info, do a search for wireless or whatever takes your fancy.

Obviously this will only refer to TiVos though.

If I get mine up and running any time soon, I will resurrect this thread and post what I did if you like?
