Just need some feedback on what might be wrong with my DSR708 DirecTiVo. I recently purchased an HR-20 which was installed in place of the DSR708 (I didn't de-activate my DSR708). After living with the HR-20 for 3 weeks and my wife fed up with it's problems, I moved it to my theater and set the DSR708 back up in my living room. Basically, when I tried firing it up, it got stuck on the "almost there, just a few more minutes" screen. I left it like that for about an hour figuring it had something to do with it being unplugged for 3 weeks and it needed to get updates or something. After the hour was over, I unplugged and tried to boot again but had no luck. On the 3rd try, it actually booted up and started working again but I now have a problem where the picture pauses avery 10-20 minutes or so(or more often, but it varies). The audio keeps going, but the picture pauses momentarily. Sometimes the picture will not start back up and I have to change the channel to get it going again. This happens on live as well as recorded TV. Initially, the problem was happening more often, but now only happens every 10-20 minutes or so. Since the unit is only 2 years old, is this the beginnings of a bad hard drive or something with the circuitry of the unit? I really don't want to get an R15 as I would rather get another HR-20 (but not before they work out more of the bugs). I can get a pre-formatted drive from Weaknees for $119 but I don't want to go that route if my problem is not with the drive. Thanks for any feedback.
