How can I transfer from a Comcast DVR to a flash drive via the USB port?
Just to clarify, this does not involve any pay channel movies or any type of piracy intentions.
We are dumping Comcast in favor of ATT Uverse ( yeah !) and the DVR needs to go back to Comcast.
There is a significant backlog of previously recorded programs which I haven’t watched yet.
The ” official” line from Comcast Is that the USB port is not activated which is absurd as I’ve never heard of that.
From what the ATT guy said, it’s more of a software issue but that’s all I know about it.
Even tho I’m rather a techno-tard, I’m hoping that some enterprising hacker type has figured out how to do this and can help me out.
My logical mind tells me that I can’t be the ONLY person who ever needed to do this, right.
Hopefully all the brilliant folks on Fluther can point me in the right direction.
