    I still believe with the price drops in DVD recorders, it is just as easy and cost effective to buy a stand alone recorder. I have seen them for around $80 lately. Plus it will save the wear and tear on your external and PC and also always be ready for that last minute show you want to record.

    another option which is still cheaper is a tv tuner/capture card.

    Make it easy on yourself, spend the extra money and get a DVD recorder with a hard drive.

    I have a Ilo DVDRHD04 that has a 80gb hard drive, and can burn DVD+R disks with the needed software to remove all commercials. (mpeg2 format and can be played on any standalone DVD player)

    I have hacked the software to make it region free and the removal of macrovision. Much easier than going to the computer and the normal software programs to backup a DVD.
