Hi,
I need a recorder that can record the AV output of Set Top Box. I don,t know whether this is the apt sub forum to post it, but anyway please help. I would prefer a recorder that can use a pen drive to record tv programs. Which one costs the minimum. I googled but got confused by the jargon in the search results. So please help guys. Thanks :nonchalance:

There are many similar devices available check them. Pinnacle had one by the name "Pinnacle Video Transfer". Don't know whether its still in production or not.

Which provider STB you have?
I have Airtel HD STB. It doesn't have inbuilt recorder, but it has provision by which I can connect any 80+ GB HDD and record programmes on it. But I can only view recorded programmes when HDD is connected to STB. Besides I need to have special remote with RECORD key from Airtel. (I haven't tried it so far).
I doubt if any other STB would support recording A/V from its USB interface.

I think he needs something that has Component/Composite port. This way STB Component Out>Component In of recorder>USB device.

I want something which is functionally similar to the VCR (VHS tapes) of yesteryears, but for digital broadcast. I have TataSky STB (2008 - quite old). :nonchalance:
