Can this be done with a RoKu box for Netflix streaming?

I tried it and got a message said this film could not be recorded.

Who is that message from? Netflix or Roku?

Is there any work-arounds to record Netflix streaming to a DVR Recorder (put on a DVD) while it is playing in the TV via HDMI?

Recording a steamed video is likely illegal and a violation of copyright. The license one receives to view a stream (think subscriber) is to view the stream personally (not public display) and not a license to copy.

Why can't people just answer the question?

Finnigan... the answer is YES it can be done.

Not every netflix user knows it is illegal to record their streaming. It was a valid answer because it said no.

Please enlighten me.
It is just for information purposes. I would never do anything that was not legal.

This is a bit too late in the game maybe, but if you didn't figure out how to solve this you should know that you can also capture and save Netflix streaming movies on your computer.

At least that's what I do, use some Audials Tunebite program to save streaming movies from Netflix:

Works pretty good for the job but of course don't forget that you should only do this for personal use and that you should not share anywhere the movies you save from Netflix this way.

Well, if I were to ever copy a program from NF--which I wouldn't, because it's illegal--I'd buy a dvdr and a wii/ps3/xbox. I'd plug the video and audio output from the gaming system into the dvdr. I'd then set the dvdr to record the channel on which the gaming system is projecting. Finally, I'd use the gaming system to watch the program I wish to record. Of course, this is all hypothetical, and if you do this, it's like stealing music. People work hard on the stuff. They deserve to be paid for it years after their months of work.

Amazingly funny, isn't it? All the hoops they jump through to protect this stuff and make it nearly unplayable is useless in the end if they actually have to let it be shown on a screen.
Once again, leisure suited parasites in corporate offices show their complete uselessness and inability to comprehend the technology that makes them rich.

Really burned up at the posts that I see here and other places. I have no intention of stealing any movies. There is however a legitimate reason to look for this. One of the producers has asked us to make copies and distribute the programs. All I want is some simple information and not a lecture and sermon!!!!!

1. producers would not let some inexperience twerp make inferior copies to distribute.
2. producers do not own the rights to the movies.
3. if you do not want a lecture and sermon, do not ask others how to steal streaming content.

I love the way that when someone asked "how do I record a Netflix vid" everyone gets all offended and calls the guy a thief and blah blah blah... When I'm probably 98% positive that these people calling people thiefs have something on there computer they have stolen... Mp3's? Programs? Because I know I don't have 1 "free trial" program on my computer.... I download movies mp3s programs and there all pirated! There just angry because there not smart enough to figure out how to get them... Go back to mIRC Hippocrates

I presently have a DVR owner by my cable dormant. Finances have changed and I have cut expenses. I usually record favorite programs that come on while im busy away from the TV to watch at night when family is in bed. After I view them, I delete them. I'd like to know if i can use a Roku or something to record programs after I turn in the cable DVRs. It didn't occur to me until I read this thread that the purchased DVRs may have to record to discs. I thought they (like the cable DVRs) recorded within the device.
Regarding legality: If I'm not stealing when I use cable DVR why would I be stealing if I used my own DVR? I'm not being facetious.

I logged on to see if it can be done and I'm getting a BOOK on the moral, ethical, and legal ramifications on why you shouldn't?
...to those who just want to add their 2 cents, find something better to do!
THANK YOU TO THOSE THAT ANSWERED THE QUESTION!

there is a big difference between recording a tv show or movie from cable using a dvr or recording netflix. There is no reason to record netflix since all movies and shows do not play only at certain times of the day. They play any time you want them to play until the streaming license expires.
