I wanted to try using a netowrk cable from my DVR box to my computer so I could upload some saved tv programs to my PC.
Has anyone tried this and if so does the PC recognize the DVR box as another drive?
Is it as easy as pulling the programs from the DVR if they show up?
Thanks. I am a newbie here.

No, the Motorola DVR does not allow you to download from (or upload recordings to) the box.

You're confusing the Motorola box with a TiVo. The Tivo is the only standalone DVR that allows you to do such things.

bfdtv: I have both an S3 and HD Tivo hooked up to the network, but didn't realize I could access them directly via network ip. Is that screenshot what I should see if I do that?

Do I need to do anything fancy to view the recordings through a web interface? I have been using the Tivo desktop software to transfer recordings up until now.

PS - I noticed the BonEcho browser, have you tried the latest Firefox 3 beta 2? (I work at Mozilla).

Simply connect to https:///. The login is 'tivo' and the password is your Media Access Key.

If you forward the appropriate ports on your router, you can view TiVo recordings remotely from another location, i.e.

:50080 -> :80
:50443 -> :443

Of course, a stock Tivo Series3 maxes out at about 15Mbps on transfers, and most ISPs (aside from FiOS) offer less. You might get 18-20Mbps if you set both tuners to channels you do not receive.

I tried it last week when tete released his optimized build. Unfortunately, it doesn't yet support several extensions that I use -- DownThemAll, PDFDownload, or Streamer.
