    I'm trying to resurrect an HR10-250 just for OTA watching with a buffer. (i know no guide data or recording) I went into setup and chose 'antenna only' but it won't tune in any stations. I tested OTA signal strength and channels do register in the test meter.. In system info it says account closed. Does that render the box useless? Am I missing something? Thanks.

    I have a couple deactivated but they still work as OTA tuners. Plug in a Sat cable to the 101 bird and you get guide data too. I’m not sure why you can’t get it to tune. The scanning for all channels is still intact on the 10-250, besides the ones recognized by DirecTV. You just won’t get guide data on those.

    I found the scan command and it's working.. It's under settings>channels. I was looking for it under settings>sat & ota setup.. Thanks..

    Can I copy this HR10 drive to a new one like we copy current drives? XFS_Dump/Restore?

    Ok, If I wanted to skip booting gparted and going thru those terminal commands, Could I use something like EaseUS Partition Manager instead? Clone disc & resize partition after?

    We have very good working reliable process based on utilizing a tool what have proper support of XFS file system employed by DTV DVRs.
    All people coming here for copy/expand/shrink requests did/do use it with 100% warranty.
    Out there a lot of programs what doing same functionality but XFS drives. If you sure it has the XFS support, you could try. Please report your result here.

    I’ve not seen that be successful.

    There is a reason the first step is to load the new drive in the DVR fresh and then copy the files.
