I too have been looking far and wide. I beleive it is none of their business how large of a drive we run in our receivers. Please keep me tuned as to any advances regarding this thread.HeWhoHasTheMostToyz ...
I have the DishDVR 510(i think the only real difference is this has 100 hour record time). I am also looking for a way to access the hard dirve. My box is faulty and I need to send it in for a replacement but would like to get my 100 hours of saved record time to my pc first. The only option now would be to record it in real time....to a VHS tape.
Also, my box just started doing the following:It has all the titles to my recorded events but says it has 99 hours of record time, when in fact I know only a few hours remained. Our power went out and this was the result(yes i had it plugged into a surge protector). Thing is, the last time our power went out due to lightening, the receiver lost half the channels and kept resetting. I unplugged it for the evening and it was back to normal the next day. This has happened a couple times. Has the hard drive fianlly gone Ka-put? Or is there still a chance of somehow retrieving my recorded events.(ps it still has my 30+ timers saved).
it not as easy as you would think the file format is not somethong that any pc os understands but try yahoo groups under dss dishplayer basicly you have to have software that will read the secound drive file format then gather all of the image files which are not standard look at the screen savers website they have hacked the tvio and 9thtee i have the dish 508 and the 7200 the 7200 is much easyer to replace the drive mainly becuase msn puts there software on the drive first the dish takes over it is not so much as the sat company not wanting you to replace the drive it is more or less hollywood not wanting you to remove the video files bascily hollywood does not like technology at all in fact there now going back to court and trying to get rid of the old betamax law that allows us to recored now with all of the new gizmos the want us to stop recording there are plenty of news groups devoted to dss how ever if yoy want a device to hack go with the tivo like device there more hackable
