DVR

I was upgraded to xfinity.  When I replaced the dvr boxes I failed to remember that I had recorded content on the old boxes. Is the content on the hard drives of the old boxes lost to me? Can I rehook up an old box and transfer the content? Am I just going to have to accept the wrath of an angry wife?

Accept the wrath....   recordings cannot be trnasferred between DVRs...  the only possible solution is to record the saved assets to a device ( video capture for pc, HDD recorder ) in a minute per minute recording scenario...  Of course it will only be in SD, no HD when recorded.
