Hi Jeffrey,


I'd recommend you storing the AG meeting audio and video data locally using
AGVCR and then converting this data to your desired format.


Unfortunately, I don't know what convertion software is available!


Presumably you're planning on 'playing' the meeting from a PC (either live
or recorded), converting the VGA signal with a scan convertor, and capturing
the AV signal with a DVR?


So you'd simply capture the entire VGA output, i.e. Desktop 1, as opposed to
a nice AVI file that only shows the video clips.


I suppose you could capture with AGVCR on the node PC, transfer this data
onto another PC with AGVCR installed, play it back there, and loopback the
video into a capture card (similarly with audio) and save it in your desired


Alternatively, I believe some DVRs have a built in DVD writer, so it
wouldn't matter about the on screen menus. You can of course output the DVR
to a PC's AV capture card - but you're going from PC to DVR back to PC


That's just my random thoughts anyway!

Looking for a commercial grade DVR that will record my AG sessions. Want to
record to the hard drive via .avi or .wmv then be able to transfer to DVD. 

All the consumer versions like Tivo are all full of recording “off-air” and
full of TV Guide menus that I don’t want or need. 


Any suggestions?
