Question about Samsung SIR-S4040R DirecTV DTV Receiver / 35-Hours Video Recorder
How do I export my programs out through USB to my hard drive? My macbook pro does not recognize the Samsung SIR when it is plugged in via USB cable. Thanks!
The USB ports on this unit are non-functional unless you hack it. There are several methods of doing so, but the easiest is probably to purchase an upgrade kit from dvrupgrade.com. You can either purchase a replacement hard drive, or software to do it yourself.
After you do this, the USB ports can be used to connect a network device, and you can use different software programs to export and import programming. You will also have other features you normally wouldn't have on the stock unit. Good resources on this topic are tivocommunity.com and dealdatabase.com.
