The only downside with this approach is that your computer is tied up for possibly hours while you record your shows at normal speed. I think the original poster wanted a way to just download the shows from the DVR. I don't think this is possible, but it might be.

Note that you could also use my Virtual Recorder utility
to record the audio.  It might be a bit more straight forward and easier to grasp than MP3DirectCut for some users.

For a typical setup, you will most likely need an audio Y cable with two RCA male plugs on one end and a 1-8 inch stereo male plug on the other.  With this type of cable, you could connect the composite audio outputs of your television or the DVR itself assuming it has them, to the line input of your sound card.  You could then use a program such as MP3DirectCut
to record the audio.

Hi how do I convert tv shows and movies in to mp3 format from off of my DVR recorder? What program and cords do I need to use?

 

Please list free or nearly free software that’s accessible with JAWS when you reply. I want to be able to have these hard to find movies and shows saved on my hard drive so I can have them even when I’m not at home.

 

Thanks

Re: Question re video editors

Carlos
 

The last version I have was released in 2013, but it's not as if common video formats change often enough for that to really be an issue.

That thing is still around? I know it used to be the swiss army knife of video editing but I thought the guy abandoned the project years ago.

Most video editing software should allow you to hear the audio as well.  I haven't tested many video editors recently so the only one I can recommend at the moment is VirtualDub.

Subject: [TechTalk] Question re video editors

I have a few programs recorded from the tv on to VHS tapes which I wish to transfer to my computer's hard drive.  Unfortunately, these programs contain
many commercial messages which I wish to remove.  Will video editing software allow me to hear the audio while editing?  If not, there would be no way
that I could use the software.

When responding, please mention the names of free or low cost video editors which you know to be accessible.

Thanks.

If not any telephone number to the above would be very helpful indeed, Billy

Better yet, just type “talking color identifier” into the search edit field, and you will get a list of all the available blind accessible models.

Color Identifier are 2 very good key words. I just bought one from
Maxiaids, and it's also a light probe, which I very much need, as well
as a color identifier. This was about $175, the most reasonably priced
one I have found. The link to the page is below. Good luck in your
search.

Re: returning item to amazon uk?

Carlos
 

I would try calling again and speaking to a different representative just to be sure. Perhaps that is their policy in the UK, but here in the US you can request a return label from the website.

Re: returning item to amazon uk?

You shouldn't even have to call them. In the return section where you go to print the label, there should also be an option to have them just send you a label by mail.
