    Will you be taking the box with you or are you switching providers?

    your recordings are stored locally on your box. So if you move WITH the box, u will have them... if your returning and getting a new box, u will lose them all.

    Source: every time i got a new box from uverse, my recordings are gone...

    Yes, just move the box yourself and your recordings plus your settings are good to go. When you call to have them disconnect the old place and connect the new, just tell them you are moving it.

    If you have priceless stuff you should record it off your DVR onto a DVD!!!!!

    Do not count on that for long term storage. One hiccup in the system and it can erase everything. or if the box fails (like we just had one do) it will be gone. Please if it is important to you record it off onto something else.

    I'm Sorry I always have to have my DH or my son remind me how to do it or I would tell you!!

    Maybe one of the tech savvy people on here can walk you thru it.
