We have an older box and have recorded many, many decent movies and today the box died. Is there anyway we can "download" all the movies we had saved??????? You can hear the box like it is running but the blue light doesn't come on and no picture.

Either way, I cannot get the menu or set up screen to come up on the t...

I have a DTV HR-24 receiver I would like to connect to the internet. Can I hard wire the receiver directly to my router (Linksys 3200) or do I need some type of an adapter in between the units? If I need an adapter, what is it and how do I get one? Thanks
