    Does Dish DVR Allow Transfer to PC?

    Hey everyone.



    Does DISH DVR 625 currently allow, or plan to allow, some way to network the device with your home network and transfer recorded shows to PC? Or hook-up of a VCR to the DVR, record old home videos, and transfer to PC for burning to DVD? According to my reading I believe Tivo has something similar, and I was wondering if Dish also does. Or perhaps any other way of achieving this end result (burning either recorded tv shows or old home videos to DVD)?

    This is probably my last question, so thanks in advance for your prompt replies.

    Some people have been using DVD recorders with their 942s, so I imagine this would work with a 625 too. DVD recorders are now pretty cheap, so this may be an option to consider.

    However, to my knowledge Dish does not offer the features offered on the Tivo Series 2 units that allows one to copy programming from the Tivo to a PC and then burn to DVD.

    Or you could buy a Video capture card for your computer and just hook it up to your PC and record it, plus it would make it dead easy to remove commericials or hack in things

    Bingo Duck...... That is what I was to suggest. Hook up the composite cables to the composite outs and manually record it via analog. It won't work for HD programming (unless you downrez to SD quality first with the SD button), but it will work this way.

    The much celebrated firewire ports were supposed to enable digital archiving, but support disappeared one day last year for mysterious reasons, rumored to be threats from Hollywood, but not officially stated by E*.
    Are we there yet?

    Yup I was going to suggest what Duck did. As for hooking up a VCR or similar to the reciever I'm not familar with the 625 but my 721 has front inputs for something similar.
