Like it or not, the provision of a PVR (I read from VM Terms & Conditions) is for timeshifting purposes only. In practice most providers turn a blind eye to customers sitting on recordings, but the rights holders that own the programmes would certainly not take kindly to "illegal" copies being transferred between boxes. You can hook a DVD or VCR to your box & copy (at reduced quality) via the Scart socket, but that's about it.
