Hello everyone.

I have a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8000 box with DVR that allows dual show recording. Have a few questions.

Is it possible to remove files from this box and transfer them to a pc or another hard drive that can be used in a pc?
If it is possible how is it done? How much space am I looking at these shows taking?
How expensive might this cost?

I contacted Scientific Atlanta and asked them about this and they told me to contact Archos. I contacted Archos and they have a portable entertainment system that does this but it costs $350 which is a little more than I can afford currently. The cable box doesnt have a fireware outlet, but it does have a usb port on the front of it. I would appreciate any information anyone can help me with. Thanks!

Did you ever find an answer to this? I have the same questions and searching through this site is like wading through a jungle. Can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

FWIW, you will never, ever, never, ever make friends and influence people with this kind of attitude. If someone had an answer, they would have provided it. No need for such a sarcastic and bitter response.
