and after i went through the setup I put the hard drive I had in the malfunctioning unit in the new one hoping to keep all the shows I had recorded. After the reboot all my shows were there hooray! Unfortunately my happiness did not last long as when I went to play a recorded show I go a message stating''Due to policy set by the copyright holder this recording will be deleted 12/31(-23333300 minutes from now) This probably doesn't leave enough time to watch the recording since the duration is 59 minutes'' when I click ok begin playing I just get another error message. So it looks like I lost all my recordings unless someone can offer a fix. If no fix should I have added the drive differently to prevent this?
