After I record a program or an On Demand movie to my HR20-1000 is there a way that I can move a copy of the program to my laptop so I can play it while I am out of the house?

Yep.

You can connect up a computer to the DVR, play the entire program on the DVR and record the program using a tv tuner via the s-video output port of the DVR.

I do it sometimes.

I think you can even use a HAUPPAUGE HD DVR that records via the component video cables in HD quality if you want to.

A Slingbox won't do much good while traveling on an airplane, bus, train. ;)

Best you can do is capture it, you'd play it on the receiver and record it on the computer with a capture device, much like a vcr.

Will DIRECTV2PC help with that? Haven't downloaded and installed it myself yet.

All that DIRECTV2PC does it let you watch a program from your DIRECTV DVR on a computer in the house connected to the same network as the DIRECTV DVR is. It doesn't copy a program to your laptop so you can't watch it when you are away from the house.
