Greetings, I just filled up my Seagate 750 GB drive with shows that I like, 90% are the "Modern Marvel Shows", HOW IT's MADE, etc, is there a way for me to watch them any other way on a TV? I am now using a Antec Veris MX-1 with a 1 TB.
Is there a way to transfer the data to DVD's, then format the drive and use it as a backup unit for my PC?

Thank you

I believe you can only watch those shows on the DVR that recorded them. I think they are "encrypted" and the key to the encryption is on your access card and could use an algorithm based on your access card # or RID # that would make a unique key for every DVR... Like I said, I think....

Dodge Boy is right, except for his spelling. :)

The recordings on the drive can only be shown on the DVR they were recorded on because they are encrypted. The only way to get them to DVD is to hook the drive back up to the DVR and use a DVD recorder, or video capture on your PC, to record them.

Either the internet is filled with English teachers or obsessive people that copy paste forums into word then spell check so they can pick on they're uneducated web peers. :hurah:
