I just have a coupel quick questions about recording to a DVD. I recently got a 622 DVR, and I have read here and a few other places that you can simply hook up any DVD-R to the DVR acting as an External Recording Device, and burn right onto the DVD. My problem though, is that when I hook up the DVD-R it says that the feature/device is currently unsupported. So with that, heres a couple questions.
1) Is my DVD-R a workable one? Its a Liteon recorder, no Model #, and a Dish DVR 622 VIP. I see the name popping up in threads, but it appears to work fine on all accounts.
2) Is there some connection issue? Currently its connected through the USB port on the DVR. My burner only has the USB port on the back, so my options are limited. If I have to connect to something other than USB on the DVR, whats the best cable conversion thing to do?
3) Does this mean you need to pay Dish to enable the USB port to be able to do what I want to do? Or is this just simply for their PocketDish thing or whatever the hell they are selling?
Any help is appreciated. I wouldnt be too broken up if it doesnt work though, I got the DVD-R for free and if nothing else, Im sure I can just use it with a computer and burn my stuff from there.
