Well, yesterday my HR20-700 died. That is, it just would not turn on anymore. The day before, it had started buzzing, which went away after I had powered down and then back on again. So I did a red button reset and it started up again, but got stuck on the white screen step 1 of 2: getting satellite information. Subsequent resets and powering off/on always resulted in getting stuck on this screen. I also noticed that a couple of times after I had reset, it made this faint periodic beep as it was booting up, until it got to the white screen. Directv support wasn't much help, and they will be sending me a replacement unit, although it's going to take 3 days. So I was wondering if anyone else has run into this problem or knew of any diagnostics the unit could be booted into to help me identify whether this is as fatal a problem as it appears or somehow fixable? My main concern really is to possibly recover some recordings I have on the hard drive before I exchange this for the replacement unit. Thanks.
