522 hard drive going, going ...

My turn. :) It's 2.5 or 3.5 years old or so, getting much worse freezing/pausing/system crashes only when I'm trying to watch recorded programs or use any kind of DVR feature. Live TV is fine, anything else? Forget it.

Anyone ever have any success having a drive recovery place try to recover the drive? I.e., create a clone, install the clone, life goes on as before?

I have 85 hrs recorded on this thing I really don't want to lose. No service Dish provides for something like this? (I know, but I have to ask ...)

If anyone can get the data back it would be Ontrack.com. However, I'm not that hopeful because I'm sure all of the video on the drive is encrypted and possibly in a proprietary format.
