Unfortunately, The Merg is probably right about your hard drive being in hard drive heaven but you might want to unplug the unit from the wall for 30 minutes or so and then plug it back in. If it reformats the HDD correctly but then fails again later, you could have a power supply problem.
In any event, a call to DirecTV to explore your replacement options is probably in order. Be sure to describe exactly what is happening or they might try to send out a techician which will add big bucks to your bill.
