My HR23-700 wanted to restart and after that it got stuck on checking satellite settings. I pressed the red button and went in to the advanced diagnostics and ran the hard drive tests and it came back with 0x70. Does this mean I cannot salvage anything from the hard drive? I have 2 spare hard drives, that I can try to copy the programs (I own the receiver). I also have the protection plan. Which option is the best for me? And If I do send it back will I get a "leased" or "owned" receiver?

With the PP, owned is replaced with owned. However, if you did that, copying the shows wouldn't work.

Since it's owned I say go ahead and try to copy the drive and see if that fixes it. If not then just get the DVR replaced since you'll be losing the recordings anyway.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

If you get it replaced, make sure it is listed as "owned". I usually call the Access Card folks a couple days after I activate an owned HR and, most of the time, I have to argue about my ownership of that HR. If I activate it thru the Access Card team, it usually is listed as owned. If a Tech (we actually have a couple of Techs in our area) activates it, it usually comes up as "leased".

Here's the direct number for the Access Card department: 877-887-7994.

The computer wouldn't recognize the drive. Called DTV. They are sending a receiver.
