What video formats does your PVR support playing off of USB!

Typically you do what is called a "rip" where you unencrypt and save the DVD data into the computer then convert that to a video file (that you can put on a USB stick and play in something).

HandBrake is a great app for this (two in one, rip and convert). Have a good read here if you want to go ahead:

Again, make sure you know what video codec is compatible with your PVR so you don't waste time. Once you've got the hang of things it takes about 30 mins per DVD. If you don't know what formats your PVR takes, then what PVR (brand, model number) do you have!
