Record to DVD Burner while bypassing my VCR

I have been searching the forums and need simple step by step instructions on how I can record content from my now playing list.

My Hardware Specs:

Standard TiVo 80 hour
Polaroid DVD Recorder DVR 0800

Thanks so much for your time, I really appreciate it.

I assume this is a "standalone" recorder that has video/audio inputs? Just pretend it's a VCR and connect it the way the manual shows.

Question still not working

Thanks for answering. I am pretty sure my connections are correct, I did them over the phone with a TiVo rep. as the manuel does not show how to hook up aVCR and a DVD together. I told him that my intention was to burn now playing shows onto a disk. While he could not help me with this he did agree that if I followed steps for record to VCR with the DVD power on and the VCR off it should work. I did not. Maybe because my DVD ( I hope this is not confusing, TiVo and my DVD both call themselves DVR's so I am avoiding that term ) will not record off a VCR and thinks thats what TiVo is? Sorry I was not this clear before, I type with one finger so I try to keep it short and sweet. I have also spent hours searching the site for this problem and the closest I could find was a question from fredfa that turned out to be a connection problem. I hope I have asked in the right forum, this computer thing still confuses me!

480i is a term which means "plain old standard definition".

You don't connect BOTH a VCR and a DVD recorder to a TiVo, one or the other. If you want to use both, you would best off to route everything through an A/V receiver which can do the dignal distribution.

Run a set of cables from the second yellow/red/white) output jacks of the TiVo to the line input of your DVD recorder. If you are not using the S-Video out of the TiVo otherwise, use that instead of the composite video (yellow). On the TiVo select "Save to VCR" and when it starts playing, hit record on the DVDR. When it's done, press Stop.
