Copy Recorded Programs to a New Genie Receiver/DVR?

I have a Hard Drive problem on my Genie HR54 receiver & have received a new HR54 receiver to replace it.  Can I move any of my recorded programming to the new receiver before or after swapping it out?

Recordings are encrypted to their exact DVR, so no. Hopefully if you have other TVs, that you have full HDDVRs and not Mini Genie Clients so aren't going to lose everything.

If you have a VCR or PC capture device, you could try recording by A/V (not HDMI). That would be in real-time so takes as long as what you have recorded.

Thanks for the extra info on how the DVR stores the recordings!
