Before Xfinity rolled out, there was an option to take shows recorded on DVR and record them on DVD-R using my VHS/DVD player/recorder.  Now there is no option that I can find to do this.  I need help!!!!  Why can't I access my DVR from my computer and copy shows to DVD via the computer?!!

there are many threads on this board relating to the topic of the ports now being disabled.  Below is one of them.

That option was removed.  You can feed the output of the DVR into the input of the VHS/DVDR/etc.

I no longer see an option to copy a program I recorded on my DVR to a VCR. Is there another way to do this?
Yes, you can still copy programs recorded on your DVR to a VCR or DVD recorder using the audio and video outputs on the set-top box. Connect the audio/video cables from the set-top box to the audio and video inputs of the VCR or DVD recorder. Then to copy a DVR recording, just push RECORD on the VCR or DVD recorder while the DVR recording is playing. The copy occurs in real time which means a one hour program will take one hour to transfer over. The TV set and set-top box cannot be used while the transfer is taking place so you may want to copy programs overnight.
