Unfortunately not as they are encrypted to the DVR that recorded them. If you are replacing a DVR for a Genie upgrade, do not replace any HDDVRs (or model R22s) with Mini Genie Clients as they work with the Genie. Of course if all you have are HDDVRs then replace the lowest model one with the Genie to maximize the recording space.
