You can play a recorded show from one DVR but you cannot play it on another DVR. A DVR works similar to a computer that is not linked to any other computer or the internet. You may record something on a single DVR and the television it is linked to will save the show you want to watch at the particular time it plays. Then you will be able to go back at a later more convenient time and watch the show as you like. But if you two DVRS' in a house, one upstairs and the other downstairs, you can only play recorded shows on the DVR that you recorded the show on.

Off of your DVR, if you have one.

Yes, you can do this. You hook up your DVD recorder up directly to the DVR.

No, you will need the remote that goes with the tivo dvr.

Most DVRs can record a maximum of two shows simultaneously, although some can record as many as four.

Basically, yes, TiVo is a type of DVr recorder. It allows you to record shows while you are not home or simply watching another channel on the same set; just as a dvr recorder.

You can only record 2 shows at a time on your DVR; but you cannot watch any other shows on different chanels when you do this.

Again it really depends on how many gigabytes your drive is on your DVR that will determine how many shows the DVR can hold. Usually a 30 gig drive can hold about 30 hours of television, so depending on how big your DVR is will depend on how many shows you can record. Other things to keep in mind are if you are recording shows in HDTV, as these shows tend to take up more space.

No, I do not think so. We have a DVR, and when we record shows onto a VCR tape, the show being taped must be playing. My only suggestion would be to hook the recording device to another TV.

Cable DVR is a program that is used to record cable television shows to be watched later. The ones that are considered the best allow the user to record multiple shows at the same time and record one show while watching another show.

It depends on the DVR company. I believe that Knowlegy and Midcontinent can hold 80 hours and I think Dish can hold over 200 hours. I'm not sure about the other ones. You could go to there sights to find out.

The Answer is no. you have to have a cable with the correct signal that can load the information that the box needs, which for most CATV systems is located at 75.25 MHz. This signal loads the firmware, TV guide, and other applications that the CATV company may be using.

Most TV providers provide DVR. I have Charter and I use their DVR service. I know that UVerse, Direct TV, and Comcast also offer DVR. It is great! I never miss my favorite shows now!

To access the shows that have been recorded, you will want to press the DVR button two times to go to 'My Recordings'. This button is located directly above Pause.

Usually as long as you have it stored on your DVR, and just like a VCR, you can watch it over and over again. I have some recordings that have been stored on my DVR for over two years, and they still play. Just be sure to `protect` your recording so that the DVR doesn't record over it if the drive is close to being full.

The most popular and reliable brand of DVR recorders would be TiVo.

If your DVR has a built in DVD player, yes.

DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. Obviously the role of the storage devices is to store the recorded video.
