1. I would love this functionality.
Yeah... this is a big reason for me as well.
When I first got an HR2x, it was the HR20-100. About a week or two after getting it, it started having issues (I don't remember what they were). I called DirecTV about it and they sent me a refurbished HR20-700 (which I still have). I would have sent the HR20-100 back the next day, but I kept it for quite a bit longer than I wanted to in order to get some of the stuff off of it I had recorded, and ended up having to delete multiple things I wanted to watch due to lack of time. A few years later, and the only reason I still have an HR20-700 and HR23-700 on my account (especially with lease fees going up next month) is because I still haven't managed to clean them off, and once I do, I'll have to lose some recordings I really want to keep.
I also have some concerts that I like to keep to listen to from time to time, as well as the fact that I have some movies recorded that may not be available on Blu-ray for quite some time, if ever, as well as some Made-For-TV films that may never make it to Blu-ray.
I also have a few other types as well, but I think everybody gets the idea...
All I want is the ability to keep my recordings and move them to a replacement DVR, beyond that, I don't believe in external long term archiving of tv...so I chose 5.
Would love the ability to archieve to external storage.
Would expect, and have no problems with, the archieve to be encoded with a D* subscription required to view it. (No valid subscription, archieve can not be played.)
Well, by voting a 5, you will never get your wish!!!
A LOT!!! with the following caveat:
I would also like to say that they need to remove restriction that marries the programming to the device. IMO, the programming should be able to be played on any DTV equipment that you have on your account or I wouldn't use this feature.
In the past 4 years, I've had 4 receivers go bad - and it would be nice not to have to lose LOTS of recordings when a receiver goes bad.
Extremely Important (would likely use it alot)
I would like to move recording from DVR to DVR
Take it or leave it, I don't know if I'd ever use it but I don't see a reason not to offer it.
I hope to see this in my Lifetime and since I ain't a Spring Chicken hopefully Directv will see more posts like this and a Seed will be Implanted in someone's mind in an influential position and like Magic it appears.
A lot of people wil never see a need for it until their hard drive goes South and then they will wish they could replace the hard drive either Internally (if they own their DVR) or Externally and then Download their Archived Recordings to their New Drive.
It would be nice for several reasons.
I would be much more likely to purchase the latest and greatest DVR if I knew I wouldn't lose my recordings.
WOW - the poll is one day old with over 200 votes and 1400 looks so far...thanks to those who already voted.
It would seem to be a "popular" topic of sorts.
About 80% of posters have indicated at least some value in the ability to archive and would use it, 55% or so have a strong interest.
Those who have not voted - please continue to do so.
The poll will be open for some time yet.
It would also be Nice if we could store our recordings we could also store our Personal Settings so we don't have to type them all in again.
At present, you have to write them down so you can type them in later when you lose them and they need to be restored.
??:lol: Made me chuckle. Sounds like something Yogi Berra would say.:lol:
You caught that Chicagoism...
I could also have said vote, but not often. :lol:
I lost everything on a 750GB external drive because the card reader failed in the DVR which required it to be replaced. That is just wrong!
This poll must be run by the Nielson Co., 1 persons vote's represents 15 lurkers.
Yes, I so would like the ability to archive content. Anything to not have to Play & capture in real time, then convert (DVD, iPod, PC,), catalog, store etc. For some of us, archiving is as much a hobby as fishing or racing to others. I look forward to whatever archiving solution D* has in mind. Who knows I could possibly retire my DVD recorders and SuperBeta VCR
Sad to Admit, but I have over 200 VHS Tape Recordings of Golf that I haven't visited in over 5 years because of this stupid Directv DVR Thingy which Totally Screwed Up My VCR Craving.
Hey, maybe I can have them transferred over to DVDs.
Boy did I screw up...
I should have posted...
Those who have already voted...continue not to do so again. :eek2:
[It's an old newspaper banner in Chicago from the 60's]...and really I messed it up. It came out the same year as the infamous "vote and vote often" slogan joke.
So for those who have NOT voted...please do so at your leisure.
Hey, we all Screw Up but at least your Screw Up was Funny and Gave Us A Laugh and wasn't Painful!!! :lol:
