Advertisements Here is my situation. I have 2 Phillips DSR704s and 1 just died. I put the hard drive from the dead unit into the functioning unit and everything booted fine, so I'm fairly sure the problem in the dead unit is the power supply or motherboard. I just purchased a used DSR704 to replace the dead one and I would like to move the hard drive from the dead unit into the new unit, but I know that you get an error message when you try to do this. Is there any way to get the hard drive united with the new receiver so that it can record and play the recordings on the hard drive? Can/will directv authorize this if I explain the situation to them?
