External Hard Drive with Dish - format?
I have an external hard drive connected to my Dish receiver. I have recently cut my service to just the minimum in order to wean myself ultimately from "the chord". After football season I will probably cut the cord completely.
But I have a ton of stuff stored on an external hard drive that is hooked up to my receiver that I would like to somehow recover if I can.
Does anybody know what format these files are stored in? What OS does dish use?
I could just play them and record to DVD if I had to but that would take hours. I may resort to that on the absolute most important stuff if neccessary.
btw, I did do a search on this before posting. I'm sure this information is in the forum but I apparently couldn't come up with the right search terms.
