Not sure what you are asking... Are you trying to record non-directv content with it?
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

No. The DirecTV/Tivo DVRs can only record satellite channels.

Look into getting an OLD Replay TV. One that is lifetime activated. You can record off cable, sat or OTA. You can still get LIVE guide data too. I have one and it works fine. You would need a STB however for recording from DirecTV.

Certainly not as convenient as an integrated Tivo/DirecTV DVR, but workable.
