I have a couple of old recordings on my mysky decoder box. Is there a way I can easily transfer that to my computer or save it externally?

 

 

 

 

 

they are two recordings of the two times I appeared on TV so they’re quite sentimental. 

 

TIA.

Short answer is no,

 

The long answer is maybe, but you will need a HDMI device that doesn't obey the HDCP copy protection,

 

if its just for sentiments sake, I would look at setting up your phone at a good angle with little reflection and simply record it off the screen,

I’d get them off it as soon as.

Even the low fi record it with a phone option first.

I know in the past system updates for mysky boxes would clear hard drives. A mysky is not designed for long term recording storage as it’s owned by sky and they can do what they like with the software and technically the content on the box.

I used to use a Hauppauge HD PVR model 1212 for this. It's a USB capture device thay you can either hook up to the analogue outputs for SD footage, or use an HDMI to component converter (HD Fury etc) for HD footage.

 

 

It worked well, and you might be able to find second hand models on ebay etc.

 

 

Otherwise you need an HDMI capture device, which will run you to about $100 US for a decent model, and a device to remove the HDCP copy protection (which will run you to about $25 US) as well. Or you could try your luck with the significantly cheaper units on Aliexpress.

I've never had content removed from my My Sky boxes going back many many years. Some of the stuff I have recorded has been there 18 months.

yeah the content I’m talking about is from 2013. I’m sure sky wouldn’t remotely wipe content.

I thought it did with firmware upgrades, or maybe it was just a particular one.

The only time I've lost MySky recording is when the HDD failed and the unit had to be replaced.
