Coulda sold 'em on eBay.
I wasn't going to comment further, but on second thought... I had/have only one HR10. I didn't get dropped recordings or overheating. I had some lockups and spontaneous reboots early on (August 2004), but they didn't make me feel like the DVR was my enemy — like the HR21 does currently.
Maybe your bad experiences were a few months before I got my box, with half-baked software?
had the HR10's from a few months after release till the HR2X's came out
Sell on Ebay? Why bring pain and misery on a unsuspected person, as mean as I am I would not even do that to my ex-wife or a lawyer, after all I do have some standards. was more fun hitting them with the shotgun when I got rid of them, they where replaced with owned HR2X's throught he protection plan and Directv did not want them back.
have had a few spontaneous reboots - mainly when they had the guide data problems, unlike the expeirence with the HR10's - don;t think the hr10 ever had anything but half backed software
