Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Does anyone know of any other ways of being able to transfer your recorded program from the dish built in hard drive for archiving to dvd. A lot of what I will tape is just so I can watch itand then delete it, however some of the content especially the series like I shouldnt be alive other members of the family also enjoy watching so would like to be able to archive it to a recordable dvd for this purpose, similar to how u could use a casette tape. Is there any cables I could buy that could connect it to the computer to allow me to do this or can I buy a dvd recorder and plug this in and record it. any sugestions would be helpful. The freview recorder that I am looking at is the new dish dv satelite recorder. or is there a dvd recorder already out that can run off the satelite system I could look at, preferably not to expensive $700 max. any suggestions would be much appreciated

Can i save all the recorded programs on my dvr to a memory stick\


Hello Anon,
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.

How can i transfer programs from a dvr to my dvd recorder?


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.

VIP 922 wont start up


David J McClure,

I can definitely provide more information on this. There isn't a way to transfer the hard drive from the old receiver to the new one, but our HD DVR equipment does have the option of using an EHD to backup and store recordings.

If you are able to get the old receiver working temporarily, all you need to do is plug in an EHD and it will ask you to format. Once it is done, you can transfer recordings to the hard drive for additional storage space, and to back them up so they can be transferred to a replacement if it is needed. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Does anyone know of any other ways of being able to transfer your recorded program from the dish built in hard drive for archiving to dvd. A lot of what I will tape is just so I can watch itand then delete...


I reviewed your post on here, brentcopemen, and wanted to help get you toward a resolution with that! As we're not certain as to whether you can transfer something already recorded, unless you view the recording and record on the DVD at the same time, you would need to check with the DVD manufacturer to see if that can be done.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I am just wondering if anyone has tested the new freview dish tv satelite receiver yet. If so have u tested if you can transfer programs from the box to your pc via usb or not. It says on the first page...


brentcopeman

If I understand you correctly, you want to know if you connect an external hard drive to your DISH Network receiver, can you transfer the recorded contents to your PC? If that is what you are asking, the answer is no. When you connect the EHD to your receiver, you can transfer recorded events from the receiver's HD to the EHD for extra storage and view the contents from the EHD but you can't transfer the contents from the EHD to your PC. When you plug the EHD into your PC, it will ask you to reformat the HD, which if you do reformat, you will lose all the contents on the HD. I hope this helps.

Tech support tells me hard drive failed. but I need valuable recordings off the drive. How do I get that?


Hello, this is Matthew Gonzales with DISH Network. If the hard drive on the receiver is faulty, there is no way we can guarantee the recordings would be able to be transferred off the receiver. However, if you wish to back up recordings in the future, you can hook up an external hard drive to the unit, it is a one time $40 fee to activate the service on the account. With an external hard drive, you can transfer your recordings from the receiver to the EHD, that way in the future if the receiver goes bad, you have the recordings on the external hard drive. Hope this helps.

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!

Recovery of content on DVR-625 hard drive


usually hard drive failure boils down to files not opening succesfully, or a random internal failure, not a physical issue with the hard drive, however because dish network repairs these issues on a large scale the fix is to wipe the software and start over which means all recordings are lost, unfortunately recovering these recordings is basically impossible... if you often record things which are imperative to your business i would suggest getting a 622/722 dvr which will allow you to download these recordings to an external hard drive via usb, you will have unlimited use uploading and downloading programs for a one time fee of about 40$

Changing Channels


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.
