    One way is to transfer from dvr to DVD, which can be loaded to your computer. Then convert to an iPad file like mp4 and transfer to iTunes and sync to iPad.

    Couldn't you just watch them 'direct' from the MacBook... On the road ?

    Thanks for the link. But that program only works on msft os and I have a Mac book pro. I do have a desktop pc at home as well so maybe i will try it on the desktop. I have my direct
    Tv box Plugged into my router so I can do on demand but can't seem to access it on my Mac.

    That same general site also discussed MacBooks. Just enter a search at the main web site and it will show several links, one of which may help.
