I have a DirectTV satelite receiver with built in digital video recorder

Is there any way to transfer the files from the internal harddrive, short of taking it appart and connecting the harddrive to my computer? If I did this, are the video files on the DirectTV harddrive in a format readable by VideoReDo?

I seriously doubt it. When I converted to DirecTV (R16-300 DVR) from my previous cable co, I kept the TiVo (S2 5400) just so I could keep the ability to download show/movies and gladly pay the extra $11 per month for this "privilege".

What model DVR do you have. Your only option may be to get a DVD player/recorder and connect it between the DVR and TV. Play the show/movie on the DVR and record it on the DVD writer. Then copy the DVD into your PC.
