    Can I transfer my recording from a non hacked sd dvr 80 to a hard drive I built using instantcake?

    If you have the original hard drive, why did you need instantcake?

    lpwcomp, probably because dc123 was bitten by the incompatibility between an old version of the DTiVo software and a recent DirecTV guide data change. Using InstantCake to get the current version is one way to fix that.

    dc123, sorry, if your old DVR was not hacked and encryption disabled, the recordings are not transferable.
