With a few hardware modifications to the Humax PVR 9200T you can setup a USB connection directly to the hard disk and recorded programme files to your PC. You can read up on the hardware modifications you need here on the HumaxDisk wiki or here on phew's own website.

Or you can remove the hard disk from the 9200T itself and connect it directly to the IDE interface inside your PC. See here for details on how to do this.

Which ever method you decide, you will need phew's 9200TReadFiles - the latest version is available here: . Once you have downloaded this Windows executable make sure you have the following DLL file installed in your Windows system32 directory before you can you it.
