I used to have Tivo years ago & really liked the feature where I could copy recordings from my play list to DVD. Can I still do that with this model? I've also got a couple of external hard drives (Verbatim USB2TB) that I recently used to record shows from my Dish DVR (722). Since switching to Directv I found out these are useless, because I need an esata cable for directv dvr's. Could I use these external hard drives with the THR22? I'd really appreciate some help.
