Received 14-208 on my HR21-100. So I have a dead box, but want to know if there is any way to salvage recorded content. Some of my family members were on TV and really want to save the segments if possible.
You can try multiple reboots. Or leave it unplugged (unpowered) for a couple of hours or overnight. One other one, if it makes it far enough to get you to the "Running Receiver Self Test" (I can't remember the exact wording at the moment) screen, hit select. From there you'll have access to several more diagnostic tests. Run the hard drive/storage device ones. All longshots. Very strong possibility that it's truely dead.
Electronics die at random, just the way things go, which is why I don't recommend people putting monster drives in these things. They are not ment for long term storage, one glitch and your screwed as your finding out.
