How do I watch show recorded to my old DVR after a move

I have moved and my last home have uverse dvr.  My new home also does, but it is a new account since it had been in a roommates name.  Can I watch the shows that were on the old DVR box.  How do I do it if I can?  Which box do I hook up where?  I need very specific details.

Each box (DVR) is provisioned to a physical address.  Once that box is removed from said address, it will not work at any other address or on any other account. 

 

This is the reason you can't move a box to another residence and/or a box bought from ebay or craigslist will not work.

Call cs and see if you can get them to provision it?  They will probably say no but they might say yes.  Just a thought.
