    From the XiP, its about 10 minutes / hour HD. This varies depending upon system load, but it is pretty close. I find transfers are usually done before the estimated time.

    Interesting...I use Acronis. How were you able to snap an image of your DVR? Also, once completed, did you ever bring up the restore menu to see if Acronis was able to see it for the restore, and more importantly see the DVR as a restore target choice?

    It probably goes faster but I can't imagine why you would do such a thing.

    This would be a whole lot easier if you would tell us what your goal is. This fishing around isn't getting us anywhere.

    BTW, you cannot reasonably image the DVR storage (and you probably wouldn't want to).
