Yes if the DVR also has a DVD burner in it or is a DVD burner.
Stand alone DVRs come in two basic types one uses a DVD-RAM to provide the PVR function. The other has DVD burner and a Hard Drive for the PVR function.
The second type is more veirsital but cost more.
Both have RF and AV inputs.
Some are a combo VHS/DVD/PVR. John
I attended the Cnet course last October on this subject.
It now seems that the new DVR's can do that directly without the use of a converter.
My reasoning is: If this DVR can record RF signals from TV, it should be able to record anything that comes out of the TV, regardless of if it's from a LaserDisc player or a VHS player. Am I right?
If yes, can I wire the AV signals directly to the DVR without the TV, or use the TV only as a monitor?
I haven't bought the DVR machine yet, waiting for inputs from fellow members.
