Excellent, all in the diary, many thanks Kev.
Can I semi-hijack this in the hope that some tv boffins out there can help?
I've recently gone from having a combined DVD-R / HDD / freeview box (let's call it "Box 1"...) - which meant that I could burn HDD recordings to a blank DVD - to a Virgin Media Tivo box (cable, plus HDD; like a Sky box I assume). Box 1 is still plumbed in, so I can play DVDs, and any HDD recordings that are still on there, on the tv.
But is there anyway to record programmes from the Tivo onto Box 1, to get them onto a disk?
