Want to download a program from a DVR preferably to a USB port or even laptop or portable DVD burner. A) Can this be done? B) If so, how? Is there some block or code placed into these recordings that would prohibit me from viewing once transferred to my laptop or USB or portable DVD burner? Any help would be appreciated...thanks! Wade

Question for wpalmer58 and aviewer: Do other TV providers have instructions on how to archive shows from their DVR's to other media? My reason for asking is simple: On this forum, we see that question at least 4-6 times a month. Do other providers allow that / advertise that. My guess is "no" as the content owners would be highly upset. Just my guess.

dhascall - Since you asked - No.
(Offered in the same spirit I answered wpalmer58's questions.)

The only time I have read where people were able to download/backup programs from their DVRs was to use 3rd party hardware.
