I am a football writer/blogger. I record a ton of games all year long so I can reference them when needed for writing about the NFL draft or players that are changing teams. From 1995-2010 I filled up record numbers of VHS tapes. In 2011 I moved to using DVDs. This year I finally broke down and got DirecTV HD. I've been with DTV since 1999, but kept resisting HD due to recording complications. I have 2 HD DVRs in my living room. I need to be able to record 10 to 15 games per week, per DVR. They'll fill up in 2 weeks basically. So I need to be able to transfer the games somewhere. I've read about the eSATA external hard drives. Sounds like this could be a good solution. I also considered copying some of the games to my computer. Would that be practical? What kind of hardware would I need? Any other solutions that are out there? Thanks for any help. I love the HD picture, but also miss the days of buying a VCR and hooking it up in 5 minutes and being ready to go. Simpler times.
