Recording hi-def tv shows?
« on: May 31, 2008, 01:08 PM »
Anyone got any ideas how to archive recorded HD TV programmes? I have a Sky HD HDD recorder but the HD shows on there eat up my disc space really fast. I know I can record to DVD but then I'm downscaling to SD.

In the UK it appears that Blu-Ray recorders are not available, is this the situation elsewhere? Ideally I would like to connect my Sky box to some sort of bluray recorder to record in 720p or even 1080i (Sky don't broadcast in 1080p) but nothing seems to exist to let me do this. I have a bluray-writer on my PC so perhaps there's a way of utilising this?

Copying HD shows MUST be possible because...apparently...you can...ahem...download them form the internet

Any ideas?
