It's dead

So my RCA DVR 80 dies yesterday and was able to set up a new TIVO yesterday. Not happy about the new remote not being able to control our OTA TIVO. Don't like the fact that there is no " save to VCR" option, but will try to transfer by playing to my DVD.
Is there any way to recover the content from the dead TIVO? It wasn't responding to any input form either the remote or buttons on the front.

Not if it can't boot. It might be a bad power supply.

It powers up and gets to the "blue" screen where it searches for satellites, but then nothing! Wasn't a lot on it but I'm having trouble remembering my season passes.
With the THR 22-100 what do I gain by having it on our network?

You can serve photos and music to it (via TiVo Desktop, pyTivo, or etc.), and it will respond to the network remote protocol. I'm not sure if there's anything else.

I can't recommend the THR22. Get the HR44 Genie instead.
