Direct Tv HD DVR questions

I have an HD DVR I would love to get the movies off of before I ship it back. Is there anyway of doing so?? It has 2 USB ports i know they are probably for input and not output but I just wanna check. I would love to get the movies off of there to my computer or External HD. Please let me know. Thanks!

Don't know about Direct's DVR equipment, but I can do it on our Dish DVR. I actually have an external hard drive attached to it right now where I store stuff (4 star movies that I like) so as not to clog up the onboard drive. I'm guessing Direct would be similar. To use mine I select <DVR>, <My Media>, <External USB devices>. I can then either view from directly from the external drive or restore it to the onboard drive first.
