can I download recordings from the X1 DVR to free up space?

My X1 DVR is nearly full but I have some programs on there I want to save to watch later.  Is there a way to download recordings off the DVR to free up space?

you can watch a show on the device and record it onto a VCR if that is what you mean. (will not be in HD).
