How to Copy DVD+R to DVD-R on Windows/Mac

Question: I have a DVD+R video disk that I want to play in my TV surround sound system DVD player. The TV's DVD "player" will only play DVD-R formatted DVD's according to the manufacturer. It's an older system. These days I think I can buy players that will play all formats. So, my DVD+R disk won't play at all in my player. It will play on my computer using my Lite-On DVD RW but not in my player that's hooked to my large screen TV. Is there any way to "convert" a DVD+R formatted disk to a DVD-R disk?
