Default DISH adds External Hard Drive Capability

Now you can add an SBU 2.0 external hard drive to your Dish DVR for more storage capacity. There is a one time charge of $39.95. A menu comes up on your TV for formatting and set up. You can transfer stored programs from the DVR to the external hard drive. One draw back the transfer is in real time, so a 1 hour program takes 1 hour to transfer, but you can watch other programs during the transfer. Playback from the hard drive is just like the DVR.

Default Dish External Hard Drive

I am not sure yet if you can replug the hard drive directly in to your PC. You can however send the videos from the DVR to a media PC and make DVD's. The PC is hooked to the DVR using cat5 cable and is treated as a second TV. So far I have only made SD DVD's this way.
