power outage changes Replay settings

We had a short (44 min) power outage this morning. One of my Replays (the one connected to a cable box) stopped recording shows. The shows would appear in the Replay guide but blank with the message that there was no video. The cable box is OK and works fine with Another Replay but not on that Replay.

I'm keeping the inputless Replay, which has shows on it. When I went to disable the input, I found it was wrong (it was set to RF rather than INPUT 1, as it was until this morning). Any ideas about what could have happened?

No one has responded, so I will.

I suspect there was a power spike that coincided with the power outage and that modified a value in the settings EEPROM or disk. It probably caused an invalid value which the ReplayTV associated with RF input.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing in PERL!
