    Your best option is to use youtube-dl, as malcolm suggested. You get the best possible version available from youtube, without recording eventual playback glitches on your screen.

    About recording to USB, you can't. Part of the agreement of manufacturers and content right owners is that you can't record from a smart TV (or Bluray) to something that can be copied. The USB port is there only for media playback, sometimes only as a service port. Some devices allow you to record to an internal drive, but you can't copy it, only play it back on the very same device.

    Again, anything that allow you to record a DRM'd stream, removing the DRM in the process, is illegal (think dvdcss). Some computer magazine authors say it is a gray area, but not really.

    You'll also get the audio right, and if you want you can re-encode it - with avidemux if you want a GUI, for example.

    Sort, that is just nonsense. I do it all the time with my smart TV (with FTA programs). What might be true is that different jurisdictions may constrain what is allowed in certain countries.

    So you can record FTA programs, OK, they are probably not DRM'd as I believe I mentioned in one of the posts above. But AFAIK you can't record a DRM'd one, like a cable channel. Or can you? And not to an internal drive in your TV, but to an external stick you can transfer to a computer and watch the recording.

    I did download the file from youtube. I copied small sections using simplescreenrecorder. I saved the resulting files as mp4. One neighbor gets no audio; others get full version of the performance. I suspect it has to do with her cellphone, not the recording. What other format would you suggest I save the recordings in?

    Well the OP is referring to a local community TV channel so I doubt DRM comes into it at all.
