When i first turned my tv on i first saw the screen that said the external was missing. I tried rebooting then i got stuck in the reboot loop that ends with the GSOD I tried kickstart 54 & 57 despite seeming to be accepted, I was never sent to the kickstart screen i have a unsanctioned external 2tb external. I'm assuming my external hdd is toast. seem logical? question, what to do? a) disconnect (loose recordings) , get a new HDD & send both the internal & external hdd to DVRDUDE (no tivo for a week ish, if lucky), $100 for new 2tb hdd plus the DvrDude's fee of $50-75 b) send the external & XL4 to Weaknees, $100 bench fee, try to save recordings, plus a new 2tb hdd at Weaknees rate. 2 week turn around Anyone had experience with weaknees saving their recordings? suggestions?
