Thanks Kelson,

I just broke down and called them since their headquarters is local to me. She said the only thing she could suggest would be to have it delivered to a friend. The offer is still up...

This is way easier and it's free. Make the boot CD, run it and select the clone option and Bobs your uncle. I just used it to swap the mSATA card in my WMC7 DVR and it worked fine. Plus it does the...

When did they switch from Tribune Media to Rovi? Can you point me to more info on this if it's factual?

Here's a cable I got from Microcenter for a slim line ODD. Sorry it's blurry but you can see a slight problem with the power conductors. They're reversed. It blew out the switch FET in the 5V supply...

Actually, it only needed the connector, 4 coupling caps and a couple of termination resistors, probably less than 50 cents to Dish. The interface is baked into the chipset. The important factor was...
