Digital Video Recorders
How does the DVR works?
The DVR is placed between a source of television signal (set top
box or direct cable or TV antenna) and your television set. It
allows you to schedule and record / store TV shows from the source
and watch them later.

Can you transfer recorded material out from a dvr?
Can you play recorded shows from one DVR on another DVR?
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.

What is a DVR?
A DVR is a Digital Video Recorder. It's like a VCR, but instead of using a tape it records and plays back video digitally. It works like your computer, with a hard drive that stores the information. TiVo is the most popular DVR. It was one of the first on the market. These days there are other competing brands of DVRs, and many cable companies have started offering DVR services. Essentially, they've built a DVR into your cable box and then sell you the ability to use it as an added option (generally for $10 a month or so). The cable-company option requires no hardware since the DVR receiver is integrated with your program menu, so it can be cheaper.
