  • HR-24 receiver connected to external HD dead

    I need some guidance prepping for the delivery later this afternoon of our new HR-24 receiver. Our current one, which is connected to an external HD, went belly up earlier this week, and DTV is coming out to replace it. I know I can't save the programming on the external drive, since it's registered to the dead receiver. But I want to re-use this drive on the new receiver. What do I need to do to make that happen? Will the new receiver automatically wipe or re-write over the contents on the drive? Or do I need to do some fancy work on it in order to retrieve the space that the programming is taking up on the drive?

    You should be able to connect the drive to the new box and then manually delete any recordings that show up in the list. They won't be playable.
