Whoops, just noticed OPO has Navigator rather than SARA. I have no idea what the Navigator sequence is. OP can experiment or try and track it down.
I tried this sequence that was suggested, cable box on, then turn drive on. I then got a dialog box that said "the drive is not formatted, press A to continue". The dialog box is also not like any of the guide menus, it looks like a typical system menu from diagnostics. I have done this in the past and it would then "see" the drive and my space would be reduced. The strange thing is that every time I reboot the cable box, it says my drive isn't formatted. I think I am formatting it every time for whatever reason and I lose all my recordings.
Should I connect it to my pc and format it that way first? Would that help? Can I even get the right format?
I am still getting the "black screen" recordings. This basically means my box says I have the show, but when I hit play, the screen goes black. I can't fast forward or rewind.
I have an appointment with the cable guy on Friday, hopefully it is just a signal issue.
