ok, Let me start by saying I have searched the forums for this and I can't seem to find it.

I have 2 directv hard drives from my DVRs and I have a case so they are now external hard drives. I was wondering if there was a program out there so I an get the videos and everything off of them to play on my comp? Anyone have any ideas?

You can't. The recordings on the drive are encrypted to prevent exactly what you're trying to do. The DirecTV DVRs actually use an XFS filesystem, so with enough tweaking you could mount it, but you still won't be able to play those recordings.
