Television is our #1 source of entertainment. We have four TiVO units, two of which have always been connected to external DVD burners to allow us to copy shows to DVDs. I assume because of copyright abuses the TiVO boxes have now stopped allowing the "Save to VCR" function. We generally watch most of our backlogged shows while on vacation, and now that I won't have DVDs I don't know how to keep the shows stored for later watching. Is there any combination of technologies that will allow me to record the shows and then transfer them to DVDs? I tried using TiVO Desktop software on my Windows 7 computer, but it's the most unreliable and buggy program I've ever used.
