Need a dvd recorder with hard drive that can store and burn dvd's from a Dish Network DVR. The newer ones, I'm told, don't store or burn the newer movies because of some encrypted code preventing them form being copied. My buddy has a Panasonic DMR-EH-50 that seems to still work well with his DVR. I'd just like to I'd like to play movies from my DVR, copy them to my Dvd recorder hard drive, then make as many copies as I'd like for friends and family. The one I had previous did that( Brand- ilo), but stopped working.

Re: Dvd recorder with hard drive
Humax DRT-800 DVD Recorder/DVR As a progressive scan DVD player, the DTR800 can play MP3s, CDs, DVDs or audio CDs. Most common types of recordable disks can be read, such as CD-R/RW and DVD-R/RW. The DRT800 can also decode Dolby Digital Surround and DTS Surround multi-channel audio formats. Using the component video outputs and the optical digital output, you can replace your DVD player with this unit. TiVo supports MP3 ID3 tags, so you can view the album and song names on your video screen.
The best part of this unit is the DVD recorder. The DTR800 has a “4X” DVD burner in it that can burn to DVD –R/-RW discs (sorry, it can’t write to DVD+R/+RW discs) and recording to DVD is nothing short of simple. Just select the programs you want on the “Now Playing” list and select “Copy to DVD.” It will show you how much space remains on the DVD and you can either add more or burn it. This allows you to save your favorite shows or share them with friends who have DVD players. Recording to DVD allows you to save previously recorded shows to DVD and free up valuable hard drive space. In the highest-quality mode, a one-hour TV program will take up most of the DVD. In high mode, you can fit two hours of TV shows onto a DVD-R or DVD-RW. If you still want to burn a two-hour movie you recorded in best mode, the DTR800 can span the movie to multiple DVDs. The DTR800 burns DVDs in the background, so you can still record and watch live TV while this is happening. for more detailed information click the link http://www.avrev.com/home-theater-media-servers/satellite-cable-receivers-pvrs-dvrs-tivo/humax-drt-800-dvd-recorder-dvr.html

The answer is both yes and no. Please, do not go to walmart and buy a regular memory stick, as they are NOT compatible with Dish equipment.
It is entirely possible to transfer recordings from your DVR to a storage device, but it will need to be Dish Network issued. Call into Dish Network and inquire about an "external hard drive" as they are available for individual purchase.
The external hard drive will be $99, but will store all you data without an issue. I sell these devices on a daily basis, they are easy to use and reliable. Don't make the wrong choice and pass up the right decisions, you spent a lot of time getting those recordings together. Do you really want to part ways with them over $99?I sure wouldn't, and that's why I have used one personally.
No, most DVRs do not allow copies to be made to disk, etc.. Some like Dish, do allow you copy to an external hard drive for back up storage and viewing through the DVR.
You need to check with the mfg. of your DVR or service provider.
Any external USB hard drive that uses a 3.5" hard drive (the larger drives they use in desktops) will work. These all come with an external power adapter you must plug into the wall.
The external hard drive units that use the smaller 2.5" hard drives are the ones they use in laptops. These require much less power, and can be powered by the PC's USB port although some do come with an optional power adapter. However the Dish receiver does not send enough power to its USB port to power the hard drive, which is why the tech told you to get one that has an external power supply.
Even then the DVR uses a drive format that your computer may not recognize. I don't know if there are tools out there that will let you connect a hard drive from a DVR, read and convert the TV shows stored there.
Another option is to buy a DVD recorder. This is like a VCR, only it uses a DVD disc and not a video tape. Connect the DVD recorder to the outputs on the DVR, and then set the DVD recorder so it will record from its input. (on my DVD recorder this is "IN2")
Put a blank DVD into the DVD recorder, start playing a show on the DVR, and hit record on the DVD recorder. When the show is finished, hit stop on the DVD recorder to stop recording. The advantage here is you can then play this DVD on any DVD drive. The disadvantage is DVD recorders only record in non-HD. You can still play a show in HD, but the recording you get won't be in HD. Also, the show has to record in real time. So if it's a 60 minute episode, it will take 60 minutes to record.
Hi gehrlichman, my name is Mike Houston of DISH Network andI was going over your post and seen where you were asking about an externalhard drive to get the recordings off your 625 DVR receiver. To do that you willneed to upgrade to our VIP HD series receivers, if you get the HD DVR receiveryou will be able to add an External Hard Drive to get the recordings off. Iwill send a link to tell you all of what's needed.http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/use-ehd
To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.
Hi piautewith the VIP622 receiver connecting to your DVD/VCR player you will need theinput/output jacks. To setup recordings to your VCR/DVD player, you will want torun from receiver output to VCR/DVD input and from VCR/DVD output to TV input. Thefan on the VIP622 receiver is just like the fan in a computer tower. Even ifthe receiver is off the fan will still run to keep unit the right temperature foryour DVR receiver.

If you have a dish network system as listed in post a DVR 625 this is NOT possible, it will only work with VIP series Dish Network recivers. and they must be used on teh same model reciever such as Vip 722, tranfer to EXT HD then Watch on another 722!
Connect the "yellow, white , red) jacks from the Satellite to the same colored inputs on the DVD. If you use "Input 1", for instance, set the dvd to record on Input 1. Set Satellite to desired channel. Good to go.
Unfortunately, no. The tuner in your DVD recorder works differently than how your satellite receiver works. You *must* use the satellite receiver to select the active channel, and then send that channel to one of the inputs on your recorder. You can then record that channel. Unless your satellite receiver is has "dual tuners" in it, you are stuck watching the same channel that the DVD recorder is recording.
If your goal is primarily time-shifting of shows (as opposed to archiving shows forever to DVD), you might consider getting a different satellite receiver with a built-in DVR (hard disk recorder). These allow you to mark shows in advance, have them recorded to the hard drive, and then you can watch them whenever you want, skipping all the commercials. You also get the ability to pause and rewind live TV.
