I recently switched from COMCAST to DirecTV. Is there a way to capture video in order to archive programs to DVD? DirecTV uses DIRECTV2PC, but how do I capture the video?

I'm not sure if you can capture the digital output or not.I've never tried.But I'd think there's probably some kind of copy protection in place.

As far as the analog outs I think you can capture those as long as your capture card has the right ins.

So capturing the HDMI outs I think won't work but the Component or Composite will.

P.S.-I just tried capturing the Component out and was able to using the Roxio Game Capture device.
If I can use that I'm sure you should be able to use a device or card that will capture the analog signal out.
You could use the software for your device or Media Import if you have Roxio Products.
You may also be able to use Roxios PC Game Capture but I've never seen it so I can't say for sure.I think you'd be able to use it to capture from DirecTV2PC.

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway
I was flyin'

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was un-stoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream

Look around for a HD VHS tape system. JVC used to make one. The cable companies were once using this type of device. You can feed it 1080i via component video which is not HDCP compliant.
