Does the DVR and your computer have hdmi input? You may be able to get it that way. Will have to look into it more.

The only thing I can think of is if the TV has a TV tuner you can then use the computer to record off the dvr. If it isn't built in you have to buy one.

YES< I was thinking of this as well.
I think this will work,
what program do you use to record on the laptop?

I have recordzilla, on this laptop.
I see Nero has something in there I haven't used before it does a capture screen recording.
recommendations?
