Is there a way for me to record programs I have on Sky Plus box to my Macbook Pro ?
At the moment, i have to record the program from Sky plus box to my DVR, then burn it onto a disk, and then convert that using a program on my PC, then copy onto my Mac.
A complex and time consuming method.
What I am wondering is whether there is an eaiser way ?

The Sky+ box is specifically designed to keep it's content contained. The only way out is the analogue connection you're making to your DVR.
The only alternative for you is to get a Mac compatible capture card. Elgato do a range. Some dedicated capture, some hybrid TV tuner/capture.
