Re: How can I copy programs recorded on my Sky+ to my computer?

Hi Keith-1954,

 

This is not something that we support, but if you attempt the above suggestion you also have the issue of not being able to play back recordings from any encrypted channels as they require the viewing card to unencrypt them on playback.

 

Thanks

Re: How can I copy programs recorded on my Sky+ to my computer?

I'm not sure if it's against BSkyB's T&C's, I've checked through.

What you could do is extract the Hard Drive from the Sky+ Box, then purchase the correct transfer Cable for it to connect to your PC. This is just a suggestion.

 

WARNING: If you open your Sky+ Box, you will break any Guarantee you have on that box. If you have a Guarantee, I would recommend NOT doing this.

 

Again, I'm not sure if it's against the T&C's, I can't see it anywhere in there.

What I will quote, however;

5.1 Material which is posted on any bulletin boards or chat forums is written by Users and We are not responsible for and do not endorse such material.

 

5.2 We will not be held responsible or liable for the content, accuracy, timing or reliability of any information or statements contained within the Sky Site, or for statements, advice and/or opinions made or given by Users on the bulletin boards and chat forums (except as required by law).

Is it possible to use the Scart / TV output signal and feed it via a PC USB video capture device to record the programmes on your PC Hard Drive?

 

Thanks
