I can't get to a screen that says "Searching for Signal" and the red LED on the front panel comes and goes accompanied by a sound like a drive trying to seek a path. Not the click of death you get on some IBM HDDs LOL... but a much longer sound... a few seconds of a hum, then nothing, then it starts again.
I've tried the normal stuff; reset button behind door, power down and pull card for 3 minutes, power down overnight, can't get anything so I was hoping somebody had a backdoor approach like a secret key sequence on the front panel since it doesn't seem to be responding to the remote either.
Tempted to open it up and reformat the HDD on my own. Don't know if anyone's done that but I have heard some people replaced the HDDs on their own. Just looking for some guidance on even extreme approaches.
As an aside... I'm in Western Mass... and my D*TV HD box was pixelating like crazy this morning and a little bit during the Giants game last night. Sky is clear, sun is out... anyone else experience this? My son had the same problem he lives 3-4 miles away. Sun spots LOL?
