And the "AS IS" STORE RETURN ITEM. UNTESTED. No return at all." Bolt I bought off eBay is up and running. I'm sure it was a store return because it was experiencing the dreaded "No Providers for your Zip Code.... Please try a different Zip Code" loop. Here are my details one of the two main threads on this issue: No providers / channels in given zip code, first-time Guided Setup FINALLY got it working and activation in progress. So, I can swap the cases out tomorrow and get busy. I'm inclined to put my 4TB Seagate in the backup machine FIRST, so I can copy over the recordings and 1Ps from the OEM 500GB drive. That way I'll only have to do a few updates when it's time to pul the OEM drive and put it up for storage. As I understand it, should I ever need to put the 500GB drive back in after swapping it out, it will get wiped on return to the machine. Time for sleep!
