    Is it possible to burn onto a DVD shows you have saved on your DVR?  Is it legal, ethical, possible?

    I stockpile episodes of the Dave Ramsey show on my DVR so I can watch it with my husband when he gets home for a couple months each year.  It is not available to buy.  Does that make it ok to burn on a dvd as alternate storage?  If so, how do you do it?

    I'm not positive about the legality of it, but I'd imagine it's not illegal, after all, you've recorded the program yourself, you're just transfering that recording to another media.  As long as you're not distributing that recodring to other people, then I think it should be ok (again, I'd like to reiterate that I'm not positive on that point).
    As to whether or not it's possible, yes it is, but how simple it is will depend on the equipment you have and whether the tv program is copy protected.  It's not really my area of expertise to be honest.
