    Copying recordings to VHS tape or to a DVD

    • Answer
    • To free up space on the hard disk or in your Planner, you can copy recorded programmes onto video or DVD. While copying, you can watch the recording being copied but you can't watch any other programme, so you may want to start your recordings when you're going to bed or setting off for work. HD programmes are copied in standard definition quality. To copy a programme to your video/DVD recorder, follow the steps below.


      Copying recordings to VHS or DVD

      1. Press tv guide on your Sky remote control followed by the green button to access your planner.
      2. Use the up/down arrows to highlight the programme you want to copy.
      3. Press the right arrow - you should see the Copy option at the bottom of the screen.
      4. Press the green button. You can select as many programmes as you like for copying.
      5. When you’ve made your selections, pressselect.
      6. Press record on your video/DVD recorder, followed by select on your Sky remote control.
       

      Copying starts and after a few seconds the Copy screen appears, showing you the titles in order of selection with their length in minutes (see bottom illustration). This is to help you keep track and label your tapes/DVDs. You see an information screen for each programme before the entire recording is played back. Please wait until copying is complete before using your Sky+HD box again. To cancel at any time, press any button on your remote control.
