Our house took an almost direct lightning strike last week and fried almost every electronic device in my house including my computer and Zippered DTivos (all were allegedly protected by APC). My Phiilips DSR708 will not power up at all, so I figure at a minimum it needs a new power supply. It might need more than that. My Hughes DVR40 almost works in that it powers up and can receive some channels, but not all and can play back all previously recorded shows. I periodically get the searching for satellite message, but not always on the same channels. It seems random. DTV came out and concurred with me that I needed a new multiswitch. They said my dish alignment is fine and tested my lines going into this unit somehow and said the lines were good, so the problem must be with the Tivo. Is this the tuners that are bad and can this system by salvaged? I have already purchased another DVR40 from Ebay. Can I just take the Zippered hard drive from the DVR40 with the bad tuners and insert it into the new unit? Do I do this before or after activating the unit? Will I lose my previous recordings and season passes? Can I take the power supply from the DVR40 with the bad tuners and try it in the DSR708 unit? What else should I be doing? Thanks.
