One of my HR10-250s died sometime over the weekend while I was out of town. I am pretty certain it's the harddrive that failed since it's stuck on the "powering up" grey screen. But I find it slightly suspicious that one of my other Directv Tivo units, an HDVR2, also failed over the weekend (and out of the six boxes I have here at the house, these two are the only ones connected to a phone line) though I was able to eventually get the HDVR2 to reboot. But my question is this: I am thinking I can image over the drive from my other working 10-250 unit to get the failed unit back running (like I did earlier this year for another, older HDVR2). Assuming I purchase a new harddrive for it, etc... should I bother given it's impending obsolescence? Spare me the personal biases against the H21-whatever units Directv is now pedalling or mpeg4 compression schemes. While I too will miss Tivo, my life isn't tethered to my television and cable tv is not an option. My querry is more about avoiding wasted spending of time and money. Also, while I am seeking advice, I currently have a phase III dish connected to a Terk BMS-58 5x8. Understanding I'll also have to eventually upgrade the dish to a KA/KU band dish, do I understand correctly that I will also need to upgrade the 5X8 switch? I am thinking of the Terk MS-WB616 since it will allow me to run dual connections to all of my dual receiver boxes (again, I currently have 6 boxes spread throughout the house but only two of them have dual feeds since I am currently limited to 8 outputs). Is that a suitable choice? Finally, anyone else have a Directv Tivo box crash this weekend? Thanks for your input.
