I'm having problems with my HDDVR as follows:
Forgetting warranties etc., Could a person temporarily pull the hard drive from the box and just image it onto another drive for backup purposes, assuming I have an extra HD and the SW to do it, of course? At least I could then do the recording without time pressure. For that matter, could they then replace the painfully small hard drive with the one just imaged it onto?
Anyone know when VZ is rolling out External HD capability? Followup question: will I be able to take that External HD to my PC and edit/author personal use DVD's, or is it in proprietary format not readable by Nero or similar? If they are, I may just hold off and not follow up on these issues until I have that updated sw/hw in my hands.
I have been on the phone a number of times and the last call was the most thorough, but did NOT uncover any underlying problem. He had me log on the router and watch the signal levels, looking for any abnormal low's... there were none. Router initially didn't see the HDDVR (funny enough the DVR *DID* see VOD menu's & programming). Unplugged and power-cycled the DVR, refreshed the browser with router stats and it finally showed up. He claimed he did some kind of remote reset, that did NOT delete any DVR programs, and to follow up if that didn't work. No "next step would be xxxxxxxx", just that's all we can do here. Side note, I had the exact same problem THAT VERY NIGHT.
If you've gotten this far, thank you for reading! I look forward to any comments, answers.
