no, sorry. short of ripping the hard drive out and using some data recovery method on it there won't be much you can do to save those shows.
it is very difficult nearly impossible to move shows from one device to another because of all the copy right rules.
You can connect a USB to USB cable between your DVR and your computer and your DVR should be recognized as a removable storage device. Then you can just open which ever drive it is listed under. Then you copy the files from your DVR to your computer and then you should be able to double click on them and open them in Windows Media Player
Installed software can not be backed up, because of the many variables (where files and registrations are located) Instead concentrate on save files like My Documents. You would need installation disc to reload on new system.

According to engineering aspects of the 510 it is not designed to allow the recordings to be transferred. The only option you have is the option you mentioned or purchasing the 510 and having it incorporated into the new system so you can access them. I am sorry I did not have any better news for you. Thanks for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know.
For the best picture you can run RCA video and audio cables to the video and audio inputs on your VCR. Another way would be to connect your TV out to your VCR Ant in and then the TV out from the VCR to your TV. Tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 (set on the VCR) Turn on the VCR and you should see a picture. This should work without any problem. If it doesn't, then it is possible that your VCR has anti-copy firmware installed to inhibit or stop the copy process when triggered by a code from the program being aired. (GO Video has this) Many older VCR's do not. Try copying directly off the air or a commecial and see if your VCR can record that. If it can, then your VCR is equipped with a Macromedia Anti-piracy chipset and firmware. If it can't copy ANYTHING, then there is a problem with your cables or VCR. If you try replacing the cables with different ones, and it still doesn't work, then you VCR is defective and may require servicing.
