Transfer DVR Recorded Shows to New Eq

Scheduled upgrade from HD DVR to HD Genie.  Is there a way to save the recorded shows on the old equipment and/or transfer to new equipment.

Re: Transfer DVR Recorded Shows to New Eq

Yes !!! DirecTV tech support.first told me "it wasn't TECHNICALLY " (I. E. NO SUCH TECHNOLOGY EXISTS !!! ) POSSIBLE !!!!
EXCEPT, *ALL'* Latest DirecTV HD/DVR RECIEVERS, Have a Special, Unique, 'ESATA' CABLE CONNECTION SLOT, at the Back of the HD/DVR RECIEVER. AN "ESATA" CONNECTION, IS A SPECIAL CABLE CONNECTION, "*SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED*" To CONNECT/"**TRANSFER**, ONE "HARD DRIVE DEVICE'S" *DATA* , *TO BE STORED*, ON ANOTHER DIFFRENT, HARD DRIVE DEVICE !!!.
The DigitalVideoRecorder (DVR) That Stores All Your "RECORDED" Shows/Movies; Are "STORED", On The Internal "HARD DRIVE" Of "HD/DVR RECIEVER".
DIRCTV, HAS MADE SURE, THERE IS A SPECIAL, UNIQUE, "ESATA", *HARD DRIVE" DATA CONNECTOR/*TRANSFER* CABLE, DESIGNED *SPECIFICALLY/ONLY*, TO TRANSFER ONE HARD DRIVE'S DATA, TO BE STORED ON ANOTHER DIFFERENT "HARD DRIVE"****
So, DirecTV RECEIVERS, *ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED*, I. E. HAVE THE SPECIAL, UNIQUE, (It's NOT Found on Many Devices That use a HARD DRIVE !!!); - TO 'EASILY ', *TRANSFER THE DATA/CONTENTS*, FROM ONE DirecTV HD/DVR HARD DRIVE, TO ANOTHER DirecTV HD/DVR HARD DRIVE****
BUT, DirecTV Corp., LIES, AND SIMPLY REFUSES (WHY???), TO ALLOW IT'S *PAYING CUSTOMER S*, (NOTE: The Shows/Movies, THAT WE HAVE 'RECORDED/STORED, WE "*OWN*. AS WE *PAYED FOR THEM*, BY *PAYING DirecTV Corp. A 'SUBSTANTIAL ', MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE. AND YES, IF YOU *PAY* TO VIEW A SHOW/MOVIE, BY COPYRIGHT LAW, YOU/WE ARE "ALLOWED TO MAKE
-ONE-" (ONLY ONE, For "PERSONAL USE ONLY") *COPY*/*RECORDING*, OF A PAYED/*"PURCHASED* FOR SHOW/MOVIE ****.
THIS, DirecTV Corp. IS **ILLEGALLY**, *DENYING* IT''S *PAYING* CUSTOMERS, THE "ABILITY"/-*RIGHT*-, TO KEEP/HAVE ACCESS TO, *PAYED FOR* RECORDED/COPIED/STORED (ON A 'HARD DRIVE '); OF OUR *PAYED*/*"PURCHASED* *ONE COPY* of Said SHOWS/MOVIES*****

Re: Transfer DVR Recorded Shows to New Eq

What kind of cable does it take?  Do you use the remote's record button to start the recording?  If the items being transfer total 10 hours, does it take 10 hours?
