Moving data from Dish 722 DVR to DVD Recorder

I just got Dish TV, and have a 722 DVR. I want to be able to archive some of the programs to a DVD recorder. I would like to know if anyone can help me with this. Since I know it's easy with Directv, there must be some way to do this or I can't imagine why anyone would stay with Dish any longer than they have to. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Re: Moving data from Dish 722 DVR to DVD Recorder

What outputs do you have available on the DVR? Something like S-Video?

Okay, I am reading from the manual, which is as follows: USB Port (Connect to multimedia devices); Audio/Video Output (High-quality standard-definition connection to your TV audio and video input); YPbPr/Component Output (Optional connection to your high0definition TV video output).

Re: Moving data from Dish 722 DVR to DVD Recorder

Does the back of your 722 look like this:

If so, you might be able to connect a DVD recorder via the S-Video to record the video output, and the audio via the red/black phono plugs nearby. However the video output signal may be copy-protected so you should find out from Dish whether this is the case. Remember also that only standard definition content can be recorded in this way.

I think the USB port is for attaching an extra hard disk, but needs activating for a fee from Dish. You could record to that external disk, but whether software exists to get it back off, is another matter.

There is the PocketDish media player, which I think enables you to transfer recordings from the main unit to the player for viewing elsewhere.
