Pretty much can't.

Might be able to play the content real time and hook a recording device to STB.

But I beleive most, if not all content is copy protected.

I am also interested in this topic.  As I understand it, recording a TV show to VCR or DVD is legal as long as it is for personal purpose and not shared.  making a copy of a DVR recording should fall under the same ruling.

Not here to debate legal topic, just wanted to set the baseline. I have been reading about various video capture devices.  Some specifically exlcude HDCP protected HDMI signals; is that what is being used in the DVR?  Any guidance on the viability of these types of devices to get a permanent copy of DVR shows would be greatly appreciated.
