Downloading from SA8000 ?  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone got any pointers for pulling shows off the SA8000?

I've managed to fill mine to capacity, and wanted to find a more elegant (and less tedious!) solution to saving the shows to my HD than hooking up a Replay and re-recording all the shows.

I'm not opposed to popping the puppy open to get at it's HD, but I've no idea what filesystem PowerTV uses, etc.

TIA!

Can you let me know what its limit is? 30 hours?

Also, I don't know about getting shows off it, I assume the 1394 ports aren't activated in software yet, but do you think popping it open and adding a bigger hard drive, like a 120g would work?
I would think it should format and load OS automatically on the first reboot like when it was first activated, but am not sure.
Anyone try this yet?

Wow I am also interested in this precise problem. I got two SA8000s from Comcast, the second came after my first (80GB) was filled. Has anyone tried to use the USB? port in the front of the box? I'm afraid to pop the top but if the second box fills up and I have to beg Comcast for a third, I just might pop it!

I recently ran out of recording space on mine so i counted up all my hours and i had 16 hours of digital and 14 hours of analog programming packed onto the thing. So yeah, 30 hours it is :-)
