I can think of no reason why you shouldn't be able to do that. If you 
can see it, you should be able to record it with your VCR. I used to do 
this frequently with my TiVo units, until I started just downloading the 
digital program to my computer and burning it to DVD...

The DVR unit needs to have a video/audio connection to the VCR. If 
you're using the RF connection to display it on the TV, can you use the 
video/audio outputs to connect it directly to the VCR? Picture and audio 
will be cleaner, too...
