    I bought a new humax box last July. But because I have a recording on my existing box & don't want to loose the recording & can't get it off I haven't started using new box.
    If I unplug the existing box will I lose the recording? I absolutely can't lose it.
    Many thanks

    Could you tell us which model of PVR the new and old PVRs are please?

    Just removing power won't cause loss of recordings. If the recording is so precious it would probably be a good idea to back up elsewhere; we may be able to help with that when we know the exact model of PVR for the old box.

    Thanks. The Foxsat doesn't have a model number. Is the treasured recording in Standard Definition or High Definition?

    Oh dear; I don't think the HD recording can be played on any other device because it is encrypted and there is currently no way to remove the encryption.
