To use a recording device to copy programs, connect the device to the computer, then connect an HDMI or component cable from the DVR box to the device. From there, you can use the video recording software that came with the software to record the playback on the DVR or you can use other video recording software.
To copy the contents of the DVR to a portable flash drive, first copy the file from the hard disk of the DVR to the hard disk of the computer. All the software needed for the computer is contained in the digital transfer box and the process has no effect on the DVR.
DirecTV allows customers with the right DVR equipment to stream and watch recorded programs on a separate hard drive. To increase the available recording space, you can use the eSATA port on the back of the DVR to connect a compatible external hard drive.

Be careful to take the DVR and battery to neighbors. Be careful when lifting or lowering the DVR while it is turned on. When the DVR is turned on, it records and is very sensitive to shock.
It is not your imagination. While DVD recorders are still available in other parts of the world and Bluray disc recorders are available in Japan and have been introduced in many other markets, the United States has been deliberately left out of the recording equation.
You can transfer recorded programs from DirecTV DVR to a VCR or device by connecting an analog cable to the output of the DVR and then connecting the other end of that cable to the input of the VCR.
