    Question How do I get my recordings off my DVR's hard drive?

    I have the DVR 625. I want to put my recordings onto my PC's hard drive so I can burn them to DVD's. But when I connected my DVR's hard drive to my computer it says it needs to be formated. How do I get the recordings off of the DVR's hard drive and still be able to use it in my receiver?

    The recordings on the drive are encrypted, I believe. One method is to get a capture card, hook the receiver's output cable to that card and record it on your computer as it plays.

    Even with direct PC-DVD burning, you're still talking 25-50 DVDs!

    That's a little too close to hack talk. Be careful.

    I don't want to do anything illegal, i'm just looking for a faster way than just recording as the DVR plays.
