Right now, my dad has a ton of programming stored on the DVR (whatever model provided by Comcast) and he would like to record some of the shows to tape or DVD. I've managed to hook up the VCR and I have successfully recorded shows to tape but I can only do it live - I haven't figured out a way to record and watch TV at the same time (if it's even possible). Now my dad has been asking me about buying a DVD recorder and I have a few questions: -I assume the connections are similar but would there be a way to record shows onto DVD and watch live TV at the same time? -How are recorded shows organized on a DVD-R? I won't be editing anything on the computer but I have no experience with DVD recording. Does the player create chapters for each show? My dad's a teacher and would like to be able to skip to certain shows in class.
