Is there a way to save recordings from a DVR?

Long story short, I'm moving in a couple weeks and just found out that the place I'm moving to does not offer AT&T Uverse TV, which is what I've had for about four years ago (I'm going with Xfinity). I actually have a fairly long list of recordings that I would like to save if at all possible, most sentimental of which is all six Stanley Cup Final Games from 2010. Not to mention several entire series.

Is there any way to save these recordings onto a different device, like an external hard drive? If so, what would I need? Please note that I am very, very tech illiterate, so keep that in mind.

Thanks!

Doesn't look like it there, but it might be possible if you have a Mac. I wouldn't know, I only have a set top box here so I've never tried

Last time I had this problem I did it manually using a TV capture card. Course that takes the exact same amount of time as watching the shows, so if you have that much time you might as well watch them

But if its for sentimental reasons, then that will work.

meh... guess that might be an option for the Stanley Cup Final games while I'm at work, though obviously won't work for everything.

Oh well, thanks anyway.

I had Apex I think was the brand video camera, I hooked it into the back of the cable box and just recorded stuff from the cable box. You do have to watch the recordings but it's an exact copy and you can put it on your computer when you are done.
