Using HR44 Genie DVR offline? - DirecTV

If I want to disconnect my HR44 and take it up to my remote cabin in the woods for a week, will it play my recorded content? Or does it have to have contact with the satellites? I've never tried booting one of these without both Internet and satellite connectivity. I know that it will run without Internet access as the box complains about me not being connected from time to time.
