You can do it by having the USB port on your unit activated (I think Dish Network charges a fee for this). Once activated, you can link the two together and save the files to your computer. The problem is that your computer won't be able to read the files. It will act as a storage unit only. If you ever wanted to watch the saved files, you would have to transfer them back to your receiver to watch them.

Will this burner work on dual layer discs?


Pioneer has released Firmware for the DVR-107D DVD Writer and DVR-A07XLA & XLB DVD Writer. This release # is 1.18.
http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/computer/firmware.html
(a ZIP file download, but uncompresses to an .EXE, as does theflashman.rpc1.org site download. I can't uncompress the EXEs with Stuffit (standard) Expander v7.0x here, but Scott said he used version 8.0.2 )
Looks like we are getting closer to Dual Layer Support:
(although some have flashed NEC ND-2500A drives to DL 2510 model firmware, I doubt that Pioneer will release an official firmware update for the 107D to add dual-layer burning. Like other mfrs, I suspect they'll sell a new drive model with DL burning support.)
    For Models DVR-107D FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

I want to hook up an external hard drive to increase the record time available for my Motorola DCH3416 cable box. I already have drives with eSata, USB, and firwire ports.


From the Motorola FAQs:

How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like a computer or hard drive? trnsp.gif Question How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like my computer or hard drive?
trnsp.gif Answer No. Currently you can't offload recorded content to any external device from a Motorola DVR, even though the data ports are there, the software doesn't support it yet. When the option becomes available through a software upgrade, it will be downloaded to DVR automatically by service providers/cable companies.

Tried installing hdd from cctv dvr to save it's contents.....


Hi,

Most PVR's use a small linux micro operating system to run there menus and handle the drives, as such many of the drives used by them are formatted in Ext2/3. You will need to install a driver in windows that allows it to mount ext? drives and then you should have no problem accessing it. The link below will take you to a download site for a free driver, but they do ask you to donate. Please if it works throw them a bone as this is how they keep providing such useful software for all of us.

If this works, copy the files to your computer and then let the PVR reformat the drive, unfortunately when windows doesn't recognize the drive as being formatted, it marks it. That mark is messing with the PVR but after you add these drivers you should have no problem moving the drive back and fourth as it will recognize the drive and it's data in the future.

Can you download content from dvr-625 to a computer?


Based on the product specs available on the internet, no.

You can only store content on the provided hard drive, and play back from there.

The only DVR that can transfer to PC, is still Tivo.

Download movies from explorer 8300 hdc dvr to computer to burn


Not gonna happen. SA uses a proprietary file system. The USB is only designed for a keyboard or mouse when in a special diagnostics mode. The best you can do is use an eSata drive to the port on the back. IF you have the Mystro software on the box (most do) it won't even allow you to move programs to the storage drive until the box's drive is mostly full. Even then, I'm not sure that it gives you the option to choose what you want to offload.
You are best off buying a DVD burner (stand alone unit) or output the video to your PC. and re-encoding it to the file you want. Alternately, wait for the Series 4 TiVo with tru2way.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Dvr


It depends on the model of DVR you have. Some DVRs have USB ports that can be used to connect to one's computer, so theoretically you could also use an external hard drive. I haven't heard of anyone trying it, though.

Also, it is possible to link a DVR to a computer without the USB ports if you can find cable adapters for the inputs available on a computer.
