    Subject really says it all. I get my cable TV through a Motorola DVR. I'd
    like to install a DVD recorder, record a TV show from the DVR. Take the
    DVD, put it on my PC, edit out commercials, burn the program to a new DVD
    for viewing/sharing. Is this a workable approach? If so, recommendations
    of software would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    TL

    VideoRedo is a great program for reading unencrypted VOB files and editing
    them, resulting in mpeg files which are easily burned to a new DVD.

    I do that using DVD+RW (mainly to make better menu), then use PC to
    make DVD-R copy, its a little time consuming but works fine. Also the
    DVD Recorder will let you make chapters which you can hide also edit's
    out commercials.

    I use Nero StartSmart and Ulead DVD Workshop

    You might want to consider TMPGEnc DVD Author, it has
    an "Add DVD video" button and process, that makes it very
    easy. www.pegasys-inc.com

    VideoReDo is also good to have on hand if you are working
    with MPEG. You can have TDA extract the MPEG data from
    your DVD+/-RW and then use VideoReDo on the .mpg files
    that TDA put in a destination folder. Then just delete the track
    in TDA and click on the blue "Add new track..." text to bring
    up a clean 1st track page. Use the "Add files" button, find
    VideoReDo's output folder and add the trimmed .mpg files to
    your project.

    Luck;
