Assume you have gotten some content from a DVR to your computer using GenieGo.  Can you use GenieGo to get content from the computer to a DVR?

 

A big DVR problem has been failure and loss of saved content.  Nothing I have read yet suggests GenieGo is a way around this but maybe nobody ever asked.

 

As I understand it, content saved to your computer is good for 30 days, although I do not understand how that works.  If you had some way of setting up something like Apple's TimeMachine you might be able to maintain current content on your computer.  If the DVR failed and you could go the other way you could restore it.

 

Is that possible?  If not, is there any way to keep it from being deleted?

GenieGo is only capable of transcoding from what's on a DVR hard drive to some lesser resolution for storage in its RAM.  It cannot do the reverse.

 

The problem will only be resolved if DIRECTV decides to key recordings to the account and not the DVR that made them.
