    Help! Transferring programs to hard drive - Hopper

    Something has happened to either the hard drive or software on our Hopper. The programs are still on the hard drive (can search and watch them that way) but they don't show up in the DVR section or the transfer section. Does anyone know how to transfer these programs another way to an external hard drive?

    What section of the Hopper's hard drive are they on? Are these PTAT recordings? If not PTAT recordings, I would try resetting the receiver with the EHD disconnected and check again.

    You're going to hook the EHD to the computer, or the Hopper? The files are enrcypted and you won't be able to access them. You can duplicate EHDs using some programs, but you shouldn't be able to access the Hopper.

    What are the names of some of the shows?

    A Dish installer said I should be able to copy the files from Hopper/EHD to another EHD. There are movies on there that wife wants.

    There are programs (using a PC) that will make a replica of one EHD to another (essentially copy/paste). To get just one show from the EHD to another EHD, you would transfer the event from EHD1 to Hopper, and then from Hopper to EHD2.

    What are the names of the events that do not show? Were these recorded on the Hopper?
