Amstrad DRX280 upgrade to DRX890

Postby anadin » Fri May 10, 2013 12:05 am

Hi there,

I recently bought an Amstrad DRX890 Sky+ HD box off eBay to replace my current Amstrad DRX280.

Thanks to this forum I have managed to take out the HDD from the DRX890 and I'm hoping to transfer the programmes from the DRX280 onto the new DRX890.

Before I do this, does anyone know if this is possible? are there any compatibility issues with the 2 different systems? I know the new HD EPG is quite different to the old one.....

Also, does anyone know of any guides to removing the HDD from the DRX280? I managed to open the DRX890 and take out the HDD from a video that somebody posted so kudos for that

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks guys :)

Copy+ is not compatible with the HD EPG. You'll want to be Googling for ExPVR and using that.
As to what is and is not possible with ExPVR, you'll need to ask the author of that product.
