    I am removing my external hard drive and resetting my Premiere. Its been on the removing hard drive screen for about an 1 1/2 hours. Is this normal. How long should it take?

    Over 2 hours.

    I had the same thing. I had to unplug and plug back in several times to get it to work. I then got stuck on the "Almost There" screen and had to do the same unplug/plug back in several more times. I then all of my shows were corrupt, because they spanned the two drives and had to delete them.

    Or you could do a reset(Settings&Messages>Help>RestartorReset>Clear &Delrte Everything)but I think that will unpair your cable card and require you to call your cable company, if you are not OTA.
