how to download recordings to a USB Memory stick from Plusnet Youview Box

I apologise if this has been asked or covered before.....

I Have several recordings I don't want to lose on my Youview box. I there any way I can extract these recordings to a USB Memory Stick or an external drive so the recordings can be viewed on another device such as a PC/Laptop. I don't own a DVD Recorder so transferring them by scart to DVD is not an option for me.

Hi @DaveCW 

I'll PM you what I use in a moment. Mine is slightly different.

I have some home video on a VHS circa 1992. I wanted to back it up, so I found a kit from Amazon for around £30.

It basically takes a Scart output which goes into USB and comes with the capture software. As the Jazz Club guy said from the Fast Show, "Nice" and "Great".

I've PM'ed you what I use, that allows you to capture from anything with a scart output to a .mov file on your PC (or Mac as it works there too).

Didn't watch my .mov file, but one of a much younger me circa 1992. That's terrible. I sound like a right cockney chav.

I would laugh if that wasn't true. Oh well.
