You may be able to move them to a computer. It's not easy, it may not work, but here's the thread:@pinza: OK. One last question. Is there any way that I can transfer programs recorded on the 9200 in HD to the replacement receiver (also in HD)?
Hugh, it does not surprize me you are getting no response since when I worked at Bell years ago it was the same then. They always treated the front line people like mushrooms kept us in the dark and feed us S...T.Sadly, it does not.
Bell bitches and complains to me when I write stuff and there is a minor error. They call me and complain, why didn't you call us and we could have told you.
Meanwhile 60% of the time I contact them, they ignore me, 20% they say that nothing has been announced and 20% of the time they tell me there is nothing to tell me.
So this time, I call for details and they have nothing to tell me!
I think there is. If you take the hard drive out of your 9200 and put it in the 9242, it should show the recordings. Then you can transfer them to an external drive and put the original drive back.@pinza: OK. One last question. Is there any way that I can transfer programs recorded on the 9200 in HD to the replacement receiver (also in HD)?
You can archive any hard drive from a Bell PVR the way you are doing it. But an easier way which is available on the 9241 and 9242 is to plug in an external USB hard drive and store them there.Tell me can you do that with the replacement receiver or is that another feature you lose?
Chuckle.Or they don't want to tell him they don't know what they're doing
Not the case. I can take a drive from a Dish Network 622 or 722 and put it in a 9242 and all the Dish recordings show and play fine.My understanding is that the HD in the dvr are linked/married to the unit. Taking them out and putting them in another unit doesn't work without rewriting the sectors on the drive that contain the unit serial numbers etc.
