If you hav a 6131, 6141, or 6400 could you watch recordings from a portable hard drive when the receiver isn't connected to sat feed, or when the receiver isn't even activated on account? Im simply looking for a means to watch recordings away from home.
It might be possible. I've watched recordings on a 9242 for several moths after it was disconnected from the dish. Haven't tried it with a 6000 series receiver. I would use the same receiver used to make the recordings. The best way to find out is to try it.
