Copy DVR'ed shows to an external hard drive or VHS

When the cable guy needs to replace my cable (DVR) box, all the saved and unwatched shows go with it. I would like to copy my DVR'ed shows to the new cable box (DVR) or copy them to an external hard drive or even a VHS tape.

Has anyone been able to do this? Can I do this?

Is there anyway to get recorded shows back that were accidently deleted?


Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Customer Service here. There is unfortunately not any way to get recorded shows that have been accidentally deleted. What you can do for next time is connect an external hard drive to your receiver. The external hard drive will need to be a minimum size of 50gb and maximum size of 2tb for DVR receivers and minimum 50gb and maximum 1tb for non DVR receivers. This will save all recorded shows in case anything should happen to your DVR receiver. I hope you find this information useful and if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to email me directly at Cheri.Torres@Dishnetwork.com.

I have the Zenith XBV443. I'm trying to copy saved programs from my dvr on my tv to dvd discs. My neighbor has a simular model yet we can't find out why I'm unable to do the same. What do you think is the...


Hi there,

The Zenith player/recorder will be able to record to DVD from an external input such as a PVR. The most likely reasons you are unable to record successfully are:

1. The TV / DVR is not connected to the Zenith recorder correctly. You need a separate cable for recording. You cannot record using the cable that is connected for playback of DVD discs.
2. The TV / DVR does not have "VIDEO OUT" sockets
3. You have not selected the correct external input on the Zenith recorder

If you can let me know the brand and model number of your TV / DVR and how it is connected to the Zenith DVD recorder, I can let you know why it isn't working, how to make it work, and even draw you a setup diagram, if required. It's very difficult to give you the correct answer without these details.

You Zenith DVD recorder will record from the DVR - the real question is, can the DVR send video to the Zenith DVD recorder . . . ?

Regards,
BElectric

Can the progams on a DVR hard drive be saved if the unit is not functioning and has to be replaced? If so, what do I need to do? Please advise.


Hey there! Anthony Thomas with DISH Network Customer Service. Unfortunately when a hard drive goes bad or the box itself won't power up, there is no way to recover the recordings. If a hard reset has not helped (unplugging the receiver for a bit and then plug it back in), then the receiver must be replaced to become operational and the recordings are lost. Not good news, but I hope this helps.

You may want to see what it would take to upgrade to a VIP HD DVR, as those can allow an external hard drive between 50 GB and 1 TB to "back up" recordings (activating the feature costs $40). When backed up though, should the receiver ever need replaced it would not be so devastating as the recordings are safely on the external drive, not to mention you can subscribe to HD! When considering the HDD to purchase, this link may help. http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/setup-ehd

Copy shows from dishnetwork 510 receivers to external hd


ic_technolog,

External Hard Drives are not supported on the 510 receiver. The 211, 211k, 411, 612, 622, 722, 722k, and 922 are all capable of having an external hard connected via the USB port on the receiver and a one time activation fee of $40. I hope this helps.

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.

Can't record from Cable DVR


Here is a diagram of an option for you to hook up a cable box, to a VCR, then a TV. I took out all the other things and kept it simple. You can always hook up more later. The cable should go straight into the DVR as it is, then hook the yellow A/V cables from the DVR/cable box output to the VCR input then anther set of A/V cables from the VCR out to the AV1 on your television.

You will have to select the A/V input on the Go Video, then you should be able to see a picture. The only drawback on this option. You will have to watch what you record.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
