I am thinking about getting the DVR from my cable company and wanted to know if the shows recorded on the DVR can be moved to a DVD recorder as a backup. Does anyone else think this can be done even though they do not say specially about recording to a DVD? Here is the FAQ section I found on their website. 19. Can I transfer or send recorded programs from the DVR to a VCR or other recording device? Yes. Programs recorded on your DVR can be transferred to a Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) or other recording device by connecting it to the "Cable Out" connector or the "Out 1 TV" connector on the back of the DVR. See diagram.
