Apologies if this has already been asked, but if I downgrade my Dish service - say remove HBO for instance, will I still retain all my DVR recordings? (the ones I've recorded from HBO for instance) ... I have a bunch of recordings, and a bunch more on an external HD, and am trying to avoid transferring everything to DVD if possible. Thanks in advance.

If i cancel dish service will all my recordings still be playable? If not, what about keeping the lowest possible package. Locals only? Does that exist?

I don't believe so. The DVR needs authorization to still play anything on the int or ext hard drives... I think you still need the lowest pkg to use the recordings.

Yep. Cancel Dish, DVR'd matter no longer accessible. Restart Dish, still not accessible since your account #, which the recordings are attached to, will be different.

Except for the oldest DVRs, they lock down and won't play after some period of time without a satellite signal.

And there is no locals only package.
