I got an HR20-700 - running 0x2cb, since Wed 2/11/09 For the past 18 months, I've had an external eSATA 500Gb disk attached and all has been well. About a week ago, the menus started getting really slow, previous recordings that were fine, now play really jerky with lots of audio drop outs. Also, if I'm watching a show, real-time, then back it up say 30 to 45 minutes, the resulting playback is jerky, audio cuts out. If I fast-forward back to real time, it will resync in about 120 seconds and all is OK. I just reset the HR20 and disconnected the external eSATA, now it's running on the internal drive that hasn't been used in 18 months. The performance is now back to normal, menus are snappy an I can backup and replay things without issue. So.... I've got a failing disk drive. But it's not dead yet, just almost. IS THERE A WAY to move my recordings from this disk to another and then plug the new drive in the the HR20-700 and have it play them? Please help. Thank you!
