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?
