Unfortunately the recordings are unable to be transferred to the new receiver based on that model. Our HD DVR equipment does have the option to use an external hard drive to backup and store recordings, which can be used to watch or transfer to a replacement though. If you have any other questions, just let me know.
This can not be done. U can download ur recordings onto a hard drive & then from there u can put them on disc. If u go to mydish.com or call dish at 1-800-333-3474 u will never have to worry about losing ur recordings again. Let me know if u need more help with this subject.
I'm sorry to inform you that this model dvr is one few the models that does not allow the transfer of recordings or the ability to attach an external hard drive. Only HD dvr allows this. The 625 is only standard definition.
