    Hello Everyone,

    I am buying my first Tivo unit (I know what took so long) and since I already have DirecTV hi-def I decided on the new Hughes receiver. I read an article a while ago about this receiver and it made mention of the ability to get the recorded programs off the hard drive in the receiver and over to a PC, is this possible? One article I read mentioned a ethernet port which is obviously not true. I also understand that the USB don't work yet either.

    If anyone has any feedback I would appreciate it before I go to pick up the unit.

    Thanks

    Nick

    No, there's no easy way to transfer programs recorded on your HR10-250 into a PC. If you have A/V inputs on your PC you can connect it to your Tivo the same way you would connect a VCR. Some people also use a DVD Recorder for this and transfer their videos to DVD.

    You read correctly that the HR10-250 has no ethernet port, and the USB port is currently not active.

    there are SEVERAL easy ways to transfer video from a hr10-250 to a pc or even restore extracts back into the tivo

    doing the initial setup is a bit of a pain (gotta have the prom chip replaced & load a few utils like usb ethernet drivers) but once that's done transfer is easy

    www.dealdatabase.com has all the info, the hd-tivo is just another s2

    That's why I said it wasn't easy.
