No. Unlike some previous non-YouView Humax kit you can't copy the programmes off the YouView box.

 

That being said:

 

There is bound to be some incredibly complex and very expensive way to play the programmes to some copying device that circumvents HDCP copy-protection but to all intents and purposes that's a no.

 

If you do want to copy programmes then some alternative non-YouView box would be required - e.g. a Humax HDR FoxT2 - in which case see: http://www.hummy.tv/forum/

 

Many of the programmes will be on the various players - BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, etc. so that might be the best bet to watch on laptop with the caveat that most of these don't support off-line viewing - although BBC iPlayer does for many programmes.

 

Failing that buy a PVR stick for your laptop, connect to an aerial and record direct to your laptop.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I wanted to get a screen grab from a match I had recorded as my son is on it. Never mind, next time I will run it through the pc and record it there. Thanks again.

Well you could just play it on YV and record it via smartphone or camera - picture quality won't be amazing but better than nothing.
