Need a new PVR.but have many movies etc already recorded on my own one. Can these be transferred to new one ? If not, could I use my old PVR with a second tv as a digital box and still have access to recordings ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unfortunately the recordings are encrypted and can only be played from the original PVR they were recorded on. If you switch PVRs you will not be able to keep the old recordings. I had the same issue when my old PVR had problems and got replaced.
Optik currently allows a single PVR. If you have another PVR, the old one will act as a plain Optik box and won't have access to the recordings.
