If you got a result code that says hard disk, that test is pretty reliable...you have a failing hard drive. The Protection Plan saves you about $20.00, which is what they charge to exhange boxes, if you don't have the plan.yesongs said:One of my beloved HR20's is suddenly having issues
1) EXTREME lag on accepting remote commands
2) Recordings choke up and stutter
Call D last night, the CSR had me pull the card and a diagnostic showed a hard drive issue
I searched the forum and it appears there are a lot of HR20 issues with the remote commands
Is there any fix you all might suggest?
I'm in the protection plan, so they are sending me a replacement HR20, (need OTA), but I'd rather not lose the recordings stored
Second question, if I wasn't in the protection plan, what would they have done?
Tried to charge me for the broken equipment?
Thanks for amy replies
The PP also covers other things like dish alignment and cabling issues, and when replacing equipment, doesn't start a new 2 year agreement (as I recall).
