The only way to do this is to get a DVD burner connected to your Dish DVR via RCA (Red/White/Yellow) Or Composite (Red/Green/Blue & Red/White) cables. You would have to play the movie and then burn it as it plays. There is no faster way since all of Dish's content is encrypted.

If you are dead set to attempt this, try finding an OLDER DVD recorder from a pawn shop or something along those lines. The newer ones have been configured to recognize copyrighted material.
Good Luck.4 comments
