We just had a big storm and when I turned on my tv I had no picture. I tried disconnecting the power from my hughes HDVR2 directivo and reconnecting it and it's been having problems booting up. I think maybe the hard drive is damaged. I'm thinking of upgrading to solve the problem, but is there a way to extract the saved videos on the drive assuming the drive isn't totally corrupt? I don't have network access. If I install the drive in my PC - can I simply copy the files? Not familiar with the file type that tivo uses. Please help.
Thanks. - Mike.
