IS THERE A WAY I CAN HOOK A DVD RECORDER TO THE DVR THAT THE SATALITE CO. GAVE ME SO I CAN RECORD THE MOVIES OFF IT?? THANKS
Satellites broadcast a non-video digital datastream down to your dish, and the receiver is required to translate that data into channels that you can tune to. Therefore, there is no way to bypass a digital box.

However, you output normal analog video data, through either the composite or s-video connection.

Your "satellite box" (receiver) appears to be one of the DVR units, that can also save video streams for later viewing.

To further save those videos to DVD, all you have to do is plug it into a DVD recorder, through the composite or s-video output. S-video connections are suggested, being higher quality connections than composite. Composite = "yellow wire", while s-video is the little round 4-pin connector (usually a black wire).

This is a realtime activity, meaning a 1-hour show off the DVR will take 1 hour to record on a DVD. You press record on the DVD recorder, and play on the DVR. What you see on screen is what you record.

Remember to use a good DVD recorder, and to use good blank DVDs. If you need some help picking out a good recorder and blank discs, see these guides:

Hope that helps.
