You can buy a TV tuner. And use your Video-Recorder to playback the content to the TV tuner which will be recording. It's just like using the TV tuner to record television off of your cable/sat box.

And then use something like Windows Movie Maker to record and store the the movie in a digital format.

What outputs are available from your video player?
