You can put a lot of stuff on these 500G hard drives but will it play back.? Things that make you go Hummm.
I doubt the PVR would work without being plugged into the cable.

Knowing we were disconnecting cable for our move but I was staying behind to finish work I asked our supplier (Rogers) if I'd still be able to watch recorded shows once the cable was disconnected, they said sure. So I recorded some movies, then when returning from our move, turned on the PVR to get the message "not authorized" The useless PVR is now going to electronics recycling (we don't have Rogers in MB), and I've had to resort to renting 99 cent specials on iTunes to watch over the Apple TV.

We have had at least four PVRs for two different satellite systems (no cable at our house) and I think all have worked for playback without a satellite signal... although it can take a while for them to give up on getting a signal, and some specific button has to be pushed to tell it to start working on its own.

No guarantees... time to test!
