I suspect that I know the answer to this, but I have to ask. Is there any method for getting recordings from my Dish DVR onto the Channels DVR?
i would think any DISH DVR is proprietary thing and may even be part cloud based. alike to the Xfinity X1 system.
Dish has many dvr models it seems.
so...most likely no. unless u have a way to download un-encrypted/non DRM .ts or mp4 file off the DISH dvr and play on a computer like any other video file....
This wouldn't help with existing recordings, but I think that Dish TV Everywhere is supported:
So you can get some of your Dish channels with Channels DVR (via TV Everywhere streaming).
