I work for time warner and I know with our dvrs if they break you are s.o.l. for getting your saved shows back.... I dunno bout sat companies boxes but I'm pretty sure ur screwed.... Hope for your sake I'm wrong... Also if your paying for new boxes might wanna check out time warner when our crap breaks we replace it for free
OK, so here's my problem. I have Directv and my HD DVR box (model #HR20-100S)went bad. So they gave me a new box. However, I have many stored programs on the old box that I want to keep. AND many of these programs are in High Definition.
How can I transfer these programs onto an external storage device (ie. the add on devices you can purchase at Best Buy for more DVR hours - not sure exactly what they're called).
Would perhaps burning these programs to HD DVD's be a better option? If so, what hardware would I need for this and what's the process? Would the end product be in HD format...thus I'd need an HD (not Blu-Ray) player to view them?
Very much appreciate the help!
