This past Sunday, my GF and I moved to Huntsville, AL. By the time we got everything unpacked, it was already around 7pm, obviously it was too dark outside to put up the dish. So I hooked up the HR20-700, thinking we'd be able to watch a few shows recorded on the DVR. Unfortunately, without a satellite signal, it wouldn't let us get into the menu. So we basically decided to watch some BD backups on the HTPC instead. For the hell of it, I figured I'd fire up Directv2PC and so if it would still read the HDD on the HR20-700. To my amazement, it did. The past two nights, we've been able to watch shows off the DVR that we recorded last week. Just thought I'd share.
