I'm so tired of waiting for the ability to move or record Dish programming to an external hard drive. If you read the threads on this topic from a year or more ago to today it seems if it's right around the corner but, alas, it's not to be. (Please don't tell me that it's going to happen in the spring, summer, fall, winter, next spring, next summer, next fall next winter, etc.) My entertainment dream is to be able to "daisey-chain" large capacity external hard drives to capture any program that I want to keep for my own use. I want to have the ability to move the programs from drive to drive once recorded. I want to do it now - I'm tired of waiting. Can this be accomplished through the use of a computer? If so, are there any directions on how to do it? If this thread is on the wrong forum, I apologize - I looked and couldn't find a forum that dealt with this topic.
