Hi all,
Unfortunately I was unable to record all of this (a long story that I'm not going to bore you with) but I did get the final am sharing that here.

Thanks to bokkepoot for sharing his full recording.
I have a comment regarding achieving optimal quality, though.
To achieve optimal quality you need to have a dvb receiver that allows you to record the digital stream that comes in.
dvb already uses MPEG-2 for video which is the same standard as used for DVD, so if you have access to that it is easy to convert to DVD without any loss of quality.
If you have a separate receiver hooked up over analog SCART to a hd/dvd recorded you still have loss in the conversion from digital to analog and back again from analog to digital. Even if you select the highest quality on the recorder you will have this loss and it will only result in needlessly large files.
See for more about this type of receivers and for digital recording.
