Any Dish Network users?
show user profile  Reality Man
I have Dish Network which is cool and all with the DVR etc.

I see some USB ports up front on the receiver......can I somehow 'take' the movies/shows off of the DVR thru there somehow?..and transfer to PC?
(Their website blows and ex-wife has the manual and I'm being lazy to Google)

Or is there another way to do this?
Just thought maybe somebody has already done it.
I think I've heard of capture cards? but don't wanna spend any $$ since this isn't really important.
Would just be nice to be able to get some sound/quotes etc.

yes.
It is a hack, crazy method.
Google for some 'satelite tv forums' and such.....you will find info there.

Been a long time since I looked, wish I could tell you more, other than "yes".

ok gotcha .

edit.....
You allowed to record TV and movies and save them forever.....but they're supposedly encrypted anyway so even if you could 'pull' them off the unit they'd be useless.
The USB port is for adding more space ...i.e. external hard drives.

That's going 'by the book'. Looking at other pages now...
