Can you transfer recorded programs from one dvr to another dvr

I have a defective dvr that has recorded programs I would like to keep.  I received the replacement dvr and I want to know if I can move or transfer the recorded programs from the defective dvr to the new dvr.

No you can't.  HDCP (copy protection) prevents that.  How would you copy it anyhow if the source dvr is "defective"?  Removing the hard drive from the dvr is not permitted.

and even if you swapped hard drives it still wouldnt work because the recording keys are married to the serial number of the dvr
