I was able to record a Movie from my Dish Network DVR onto a hard drive. I am trying to view the file to see the size and properties but not sure how to access it. I am running Windows XP but The hard drive was reformated using another system because I am unable to view this file using windows. Perhapes it is under Linux OS. Any Idea how i can view the file? Are recordings made by the DVR a unique file type?
