How can I record shows on my Dish DVR and put them on my PC?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have a dish network dvr, and I was wondering how I could record tv shows on to my pc, or move them on to my pc from the dvr. Has anyone done this or knows anything about this? Thanks!

Did you try the esata external method? From what i read, when you hook up the esata drive, it disables the onboard hard drive. Now, what file format they're in is another story. I think my box is an h-24

From what the dude told me, that's to add more storage space. But I wonder if that would work, use a external drive then bring them to the PC. But then again, that's more hassle. lol

The hard drive you would pu on your dvr is formatted to that dvr so I dont know if you would be able to just hook it up to your pc.

Hmmm this has gotten me interested.

I really want to open mine up and connect it to my PC and read the on board files to see if I can find my recorded shows.

Or, I was thinking, theres a coaxial out cable for video on the back of the dvr, so I was thinking, could I get a tv tuner for my computer, and then hook the coaxial out from the dvr, up to the tv tuner on my computer? Would that work?
