Its not a Toppy, but

Post by sdi2 »

Is there any way to get recordings from a pvr hard disc onto a pc?
I have an LG RH7500 analogue pvr. I am retiring it as it will become nearly useless soon. I have taken the hard drive out and connected it to a pc but the file format seems to be one that cant be read by WIN7, mint 10 or ubuntu 11.
I cant find any information online, so I was hoping someone here might know how to do it.

Thanks, Nick.

This topic interests me so I've had a quick dig around.
It seems several LG and Hitachi DVD/HDD models share a platform known as RH7xxx
A utility (val238) to read the HDD in Windows 2000/XP is listed under "programs" here: http://ifndef.altervista.org/index_eng.html
Hope that's what you need.

thanks for that. I have just recently made the transition from xp to win 7 but I hope it should work.
congratulations on finding the information, I had a rummage around for an hour or so and found nothing like that.
