Is there a way to back up those recorded shows from 942, mine is almost full.
You could use PocketDISH I presume, but that's a pretty expensive backup option to only get 40 gigs max. Also, you can't move it back to the DVR, you either have to watch it via the built in screen, or use the composite out... either way, not the same as watching it on your TV, even if it weren't HD

But the Current PocketDish only has 30GB - for some reason they do not offer the 100GB version of the same unit.
Anyways, I also bring a small 160GB USB drive and copy shows to and from the Pocketdish.
So you can do quick transfers to your pocketdish then copy them to a USB hard drive...
I do it both ways, I copy back from my USB drive to the Pocket dish as well.
Although I dont think you can copy from the pocketdish back to the 942 - but I have never tried it...
