I'd like to upgrade from my QTP6416-2 to Verizon's newer FIOS QIP7132 500 GB model, even pay the $40 fee, but the caveat is "any stored content and user settings would be lost as part of the set-top exchange." I don't want to lose all the shows I have on the old box, it's 93% full. Too tedious to record them all out to DVD in realtime as video. The 6400 series box has firewire and usb ports, perhaps disabled, but no eSata in any case. I have Macs, PCs, and Linux machines...
