Is there any way to download a recording from the Youview box to a PC

There is an item within a program I recorded from a TV channel, which I would like to pass on to friend.
Is there any way to copy it down to my laptop?

In short - nope (AFAIK).

This was possible with "some" (Freeview) boxes a few years back, but only with SD programs as the recording format is nothing special.
If it's an HD program there is added encryption that makes it extremely difficult.
I don't know if Youview has added protection/complexity on the way it stores the data, but I've never seen a solution (and I've looked).
Realistically the only practical way would be to play the program and capture the video output on another device.
