The last week or so my HR20-700 has been doing some weird (and annoying) audio stuttering whenever channels are changed, and tonight it announced there is a problem with the hard drive and asked for a reboot, and now is in the midst of a multi hour hard drive self-diagnostic exercise. I am not hopeful. I have an almost brand new 1tb esata attached with a ton of stuff we've been saving for the summer, all likely gone (sad). So, assuming tomorrow I will be asking for a replacement, what should I request? Would love an HR34 but assume that would require an install and from what I've read here it seems it may not be ready for prime time. My other HR is an HR23 and it is slow as dirt and lacks OTA, so I certainly don't want another one of those. Your thoughts appreciated, thanks.
