It's easy Nana, Use TiVo or a DVR (Dish, Direct TV, etc) and record the movie off TV. Connect the recorder to the input on a DVD burner (I've got an older Panasonic). Play the movie and hit record on the DVD Burner.. VIOLA ! Movie on a DVD.
I use the 4 hr mode because many are B&W older flicks and I can get 2 on a DVD. I've recorded about 1400 movies to date. These DVDs play on any DVD player. Just got In Harms Way and Midway , can't beleive I never recorded them! Course, longer flicks I can only get 1 per DVD like the 2 above.
I've saved a bundle over buying commercial DVDs.
Thank you so much!
I have been scouring the net for my "classics." Slowly building up a "classic" movie collection. Last winter I burned all of my favorite Bette Davis movies and 71 episodes of the Amos & Andy TV series. This winter I am going to work on Barbara Stanwyck & Joan Crawford movies.
WOW I remember those and have copies of a few episodes... They're racially sensitive but I think that's over done... All in the Family is racially sensitive if they are and so is Sanford and Son. Sure Kingfish was a scoundrel and Andy a fool, but Amos was the sensible and smart member of the cast. So were Sapphire and her mother. all sitcoms are like that. And I know reading about Hal Roach who produced the series he was very sensitive to racial issues... he produced The Little Rascals and many Laurel and Hardy shorts. What's your favorite episode?
No, no software or computer needed.... just run a cable from the DVR Out signal to the DVD burner In. Play the DVR and hit record on the DVD burner- not much different from when you hooked up a VCR to your TV years ago. That didn't require and additional hardware either. Getting into iTunes is far more trickier.
I really think facetime/camera is coming to the next gen iPad because they said HDR will, which means the iPad will have to have a camera.
Sorry for the late reply ...wasn't subscribed to the thread.
I'm getting the iPod touch instead of an iPhone. I wanted something I could carry in my pocket that had a camera in it. I'll be able to either facetime, Skype, or text the wife any time i've got wifi. I don't take my iPad out of the house very often. It's just become my main in-home computing device.
