Sasktel Max DTVR transferring to PC

Does anybody know how to transfer recorded video from the Max DTVR (using Motorola VIP1216 box) to a computer? I cannot find any info on this anywhere. I know their brochure said it is possible but not supported by them. Is it done via the USB port?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, DJK

It is highly unlikely you will be able to digitally extract recordings from a provider's DVR. If you could, you'd have to hack it, at least, and I don't think there are enough of them to have a stong enough hacking community to enable that.

The sure way is to record the A/V out to a capture device or digital recorder.
