I'm sure its been asked before but I cant find it. I decided to leave Dish when they canceled my HD only package. My only regret is I have a lot of movies archived to an external Hard drive. Is there anyway I can transfer the movies to my computer or the Direct TV recorder or my HD Tivo?

If your account is still active you can record them off using a Hauppage PVR via the component output of the receiver.

One of the ways Dish forces loyalty. With 2.5TB of movies archived in HD, it would take an awful lot for me NOT to keep a Dish account, an awful lot.

And that is why, if I want to archive a movie, I buy it on BD. Yeah, it costs a bit but I have it no matter what my TV programming choices might be.

I buy plenty on Bd (just ask my wife!), but its nice having a much larger archive of films you can go to basically on demand; as long as i can remember what drive they are on. :D

Dish givitheth and Dish takeithaway .
The reason they were archived is because we only watch the movies on the weekend. So we never got to watch them, I also saved off all the Jerreco series which I have never seen. It will be authorized until I get my new bill.
I suppose I can use a DVD recorder and play them and record them at the same time but from HD to SD. Will take about a month.
Seems kind of like buying 50 DVDs and because you don't watch them in time they take them back and keep your money. I guess Direct is the same.
