I posted about my problem in the 2.04 software thread: my Hopper was inoperable and requiring a reset every morning since day one. Something was happening in the early AM probably at the time a system check/update was pushed. I called tech support and the issue was reported to engineering, but no fix. One constant symptom of this "morning sickness" was also the EHD (a WD MyBook 750) left spinning. So I decided to try and disconnect it from the Hopper. Voilà. Problem solved. Hopper is fine. The EHD was formatted and used with a ViP622 for 2 years. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I connected it to the upper and everything (or so I thought) worked fine. Now, is there a fix for this? I have about 400GB worth of recordings on the EHD. Would it be possible to transfer all onto the Hopper hard drive and re-format the EHD?
