Downloading recorded programs from your DVR to a computer

Downloading recorded programs from your DVR to a computer

Does anyone else think it is somewhat ridiculous that you can download recorded programs from your DVR to an iPad or iPhone (most of which probably have 16gb of memory) for offline viewing but it is not possible to download them to a laptop computer which probably has 500 gb to 1000 gb of memory and I would imagine more people use for travel on business.  What is Comcast thinking?

Re: Downloading recorded programs from your DVR to a computer

I was able to download 10 recordings on a device that only had ~7 GB of space. 

 

In fact, I just looked, and a 30 minute HD show only takes up ~175MB, so 10 of those would be ~1750MB, or ~1.7GB. Double that for 10 one hour HD shows, so ~3.4GB. Make that 10 two hour HD movies and double it again, so ~6.8GB.
