Does anyknow know if it is possible to network two DVR's together to move data back and forth? I have the original SD DirecTV DVR (Hughes label) and the new HD10-250 DVR (Hughes/DirecTV label) and was wondering if there is a process or link that can be established between the two to send saved data back and forth?

Thanks for any info!

Well, if you can get a Hughes HDVR2, you can install 4.01b on it and activate the HMO feature. You activate the units' USB ports, connect a USB adapter, and away you go! It's quite neat. Note that the HDVR2 is one of two DirecTIVO receivers, from what I know, that has the ability to accept 4.01b. Others cannot.
