    Hi there,

    I was on a TV show and we recorded the broadcast. I just wondered if there was any way to get that broadcast onto a disc or USB stick so that I can keep it and not lose it when we cut off our Virgin?

    Thanks.

    There's many ways this can be done, but some are easier than others. I recommend option 2, unless you have a DVD recorder.

    -Record the output of the Box onto a DVD using a DVD recorder.

    -You can use something like this to convert the output from the box into something that your computer can record:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/ClimaxDigita...maxdigital+vhs

    You can probably get an equivalent device for HDMI (if quality matters and your box outputs HDMI). I have the old version of the product linked above and have used it for many years to convert VHS tapes to a digital format. I've also used it to record from my Sky Box.

    -Remove the HDD from the Box and use the appropriate connector (probably an eSATA cable) to read the HDD.

    Feel free to ask anything.

    Depends what show you're on about.

    Almost everything is online these days so if you're talking about a popular series then don't even bother and just get Netflix.
