I am new to the external hard drive thing. Have a few questions.

1) Can recordings be transferred while I am watching tv?

2) Around how long does it take?

3) DVR that I have is going out, replacement is on the way. Do I just transfer to external and when the new DVR gets here transfer it right back?

4) Does the Hard Drive always need to be connected to the DVR?

I am new to this as you can tell. Thank you in advance for your patience.:)

1) Yes

3)transfer to external and leave there if you want.

Do both DVR's need to be activated?
Do I transfer from old one to external hard drive, call to activate other then transfer back to new one?
Or does it not matter?

I plan on using the external hard drive as a library for HD Movies
Just as one would with the shelve that most of us have full of dvd's:eek:
Basically, just use it when I want to see a HD Movie, that way I keep the DVR just to watch recordings and delete.

Its the account that is activated for the external hard drive and all your DVR's on your account will then work
