Exporting programs from DVR to external Hard Drive

Is there a way to transfer program files I want to save to external hard drive so that I can free up space on Direct TV DVR for further recording?

No, there's no way to that digitally.  You would need to copy those programs to a VCR, DVD Recorder, or PC with audio/video capture hardware & software.
