After reading that Humax admitted to a hardware problem on the DRT800 units on the TiVo.com help forums, I called Sunday for the swap. The operator knew about the problem, she asked me when I bought the unit, I innocently said "not sure, I think a couple months ago." She said they'd send me a new or referb unit after putting a $499 hold on my CC as collateral. I agreed, so hopefully it'll be here in a few days. I'm surprised there isn't more chatter in this forum about this problem and the Humax fix. Has anyone else done this? I read on TiVo's forum that most people are getting NEW units with a manufactured date of 11/05 or 12/05 - that'd sure be nice! Any other surprises or comments from DRT800's received recently from Humax?
