So DirecTV is coming out to my house next week to replace my 2 HR21-100s with a Genie and a Genie Mini (assuming that's a smart move on my part but please let me know if I'm wrong). Anyway, I have numerous recordings on each of these receivers that I have already watched but that I would like to save if at all possible. I understand that I will not be able to transfer these recordings to the Genie, and I also would prefer to not have to merely record them onto a DVD-R in SD.
What options (if any) do I have if I want to preserve them in HD if at all possible? I have a MacBook if that makes any difference.
