I've managed to find my S1 DirecTivo that I had back around 2002 or so. There are a couple shows on there that would be nice to have an archived copy of, but I'm not sure what tools would work for that now. Could I get some advice on the most efficient/easiest way to take the recordings and turn them into an AVI or an MPEG? Preferably one that doesn't involve trying to reactivate the unit. I don't have DirecTV service anymore (and I don't even know if the unit will boot up), but I figure as long as the hard drives are readable, I have options. Or so I'm assuming.
