[DVR] Motorola 7232 Firewire to PC

I know it's possible with the 6416, does it work on the 7232 as well? I'm thinking about upgrading to it. TIA.

Yes it does work as I have been using mine for a year now archiving my recordings. Avsforum has a great thread on this topic along with steps to have the 7xxx boxes working.

Great, I read there might be issues with the "copy once" flags. Which driver did you use?

Yes, it does work on the 7232....but like the last poster said, there are issues with the copy flags. Channels marked for "Copy Freely" you can capture from, but channels marked "Copy Once" are treated the same as ones marked "Copy None", unfortunately. And I don't think there's really anyone we could complain to about the issue.

Yes quite afew channels over the last year now have a CCI 0x02 flag (copy once). I do not have a list which ones (it can vary depending on your VHO) but I would say around 25% or more of HD channels are copy once.

Maybe nycdave knows if a fix is in the works?

If I had to guess, nobody on the engineering team knows that this is an issue. Ontop of that, they have absolutely zero incentive to fix the problem.
