DTV Samsung SIR-S4040 Tivo>DVD

I’ve searched different forums, and I can’t seem to find an answer…

Is it possible to extract video from a DirecTV Tivo? I have several movies and documentaries that I’d like to save to DVD. The particular receiver that I have is the Samsung SIR-S4040. Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

About a year ago I read in a Popular Science magazine that you could remove the hard drive from the TiVo itself, and save them onto your PC. However, I don’t have a link, or an article to upload, if I find I will post a link.

Check the Tivo forums ( Most of the Tivo units will allow you to transfer files across your LAN to your PC.
