Default Saved Recordings on PVR

I've had someone ask me a question to which I wasn't able to give an answer and am hoping that someone here will be able to oblige. MC preferably.

If someone has recordings saved on their pvr, whether standard 2P, 4P or Explora, and then decide that they want to stop subscribing to DStv, will they still be able to access what has been saved on the pvr after they terminate the service?

Pretty sure this has been covered before but due to other commitments I'm not immediately able to go in search of that thread.

Explora (Primary) and 2P HD Decoder (Secondary); Twin LNB; Samsung HT-J5550 Home Theatre System, Sony KLV-32S400A tv and Sony KLV-22Bx320 tv.

Pretty sure only accessible if the SC and decoder are still active because PVR functions are only available when SC and service is active.
Spare decoders: SD PVR(3) PSU's, DSD 660, 1110, 1131, Explora 1.
Spare switches and LNBs: 1 x 5-1(repaired); 1 x 5-2.Numerous so called faulty LNBs that were easily repaired.
2 unmentionable FTA decoders
1.2m antenna, 8-way universal LNB, 2 x (2x6) MS, FSM permanently connected.

Yes Geoff is right - only accessible when your DStv smartcard is active. Those recordings only have rights cleared for when you are still a DStv customer - the DStv subscription does not buy you rights to that content inperpetuity. Hope that clarifies?
