VCR recording - DirecTV DVR

For VCR recording, relating to DirecTV DVRs and receivers. Help me please!!

I am not in any way a technical person, obviously, or I would know this answer.

I just recently got a new Samsung DVR. I was told that I could transfer my recordings from the DVR to a VCR and/or DVD. I have been searching the manual and only found a VCR method. O.K...... I can't even get the VCR hooked up right to transfer my movies!! Also, I saw on one of the other questions that the movies can really be transferred to a DVD. HOw is that possible when it only says transfer to VCR in the Now Playing List??

Thanks so much!
