A lot of DVR and other recording devices have been manufactured to deliberately make transferring, (ripping) of recordings difficult if not impossible.

This is done due to pressure from the RIAA, (Record Industry Association of America). An organization that generates lots of lawsuits, media coverage (and income) over what and how things can be recorded.

One way around this is to make your own. I use a Hauppauge TV tuner card in a Windows 7 PC for my DVR. Using Windows Media Center to record and convert the recorded files into a format that can be used in my burner software to do what I like with it.

I've been able to put about 50 episodes of Thomas The Train on tablets for my grandchildren this way. Works great.
