So, I have this old Tivo...

    I have a DirecTV Hughes SD-DVR80. I've had it for...I don't even know how long. But when we moved to this house several years ago, we got rid of DirecTV and this poor Tivo has been sitting in a closet holding all our old shows.

    So, my question is (besides hooking it up to a TV), is there a way to get the recorded shows OFF of it? Like keep them? On a computer? Disc? Cloud? Something?

    Or is this wishful thinking?

    I tried to search to see if anyone had answered this question, but honestly, y'all are too smart for me. So, feel free to direct me to another conversation.

    Thanks in advance for any replies! :)

    It's wishful thinking.

    Not even via the analog hole?

    The only way to get recordings off the box is to play them and record the audio/video outputs. There are numerous devices on the market that can do that. You can't transfer them directly from disk.

    The correct answer is yes. However, it's not a designed behavior, so you have to do some hacking. The "analog hole" is probably easier...
