How to extract free-to-air recordings from your Sky+ hard disc to a PC

Sky+HD box
Your free-to-air recordings don't have to stay on your Sky box

As a continuation of our guide to upgrading your Sky+ HD hard-drive we now focus on the freely downloadable program +Extract. This, as its name suggests, will 'extract' free-to-air recordings (for example, BBC and recent Channel 4/ITV) to a specified directory on your PC. Great, then, if you want to transfer them to DVD with minimal loss of quality.
