Last Saturday I went to turn on my HR and TV and there was a 771 error code. Call DTV and they couldn't fix it. Had the service guy come out for $25. Turns out to be the box was the issue, not the signal. He swaps out my HR20 with a HR24. All my recordings were ok including accessing my 2TB sata. Today I plug back in my sata and it updates the software and shows I have 55% on my drive but it will not play back anything on the HR24. A few questions: 1. If the sata holds programming on an older DVR, shouldn't it work globally? 2. Are my programs hosed? 3. Were there any options to save the programs on my old HR20 before the tech took it away. Did my box having the 771 error have anything to do with the standby mode?
