Is manual recording possible with HR24?
Posted 25 November 2012 - 11:20 PM
Everyone seems to ask if they can do a datatransfer and then gives up on getting the shows they want onto their DVR. I care about getting a few things on my new DVR so badly I would gladly put the HR24 in some type of manual recording mode and play something on my dvd-player or PC until it was over and then manually stop the recoding.
Unfortunatly I don't see anyway to record other than going to the guide and picking a timeslot on a channel. I even thought this would work if I could somehow rig something up. Didn't Directv used to allow a different input for local channels? Were those recordable? I could just hookup a device to play what I wanted and click record. It would have the wrong name but I have 3 hours of stuff I want on there so badly I'm willing to waste a lot of time and be ghetto enough to let it have the wrong name.
Thanks in advance!

There is, however, a manual timer recording option on the HR24.

I assume you have a DVR and Not a Directv Receiver as it is not exactly clear what you are trying to accomplish.
