My replay(it's a 4080) was working fine and one day while I was watching a show it froze up. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked fine. The next day when I turned it on a screen was up saying that I couldn't use it again until I activated it. I have the lifetime activation so I called tech support and they said they'd fix it from their end. It still didn't work so I tried the 243-zones and it said it couldn't connect and that it would try again later. The next day it still wasn't working so I unplugged it, waited a few minutes and plugged it back in. The power light would blink for a few minutes and then it would turn on and have the same activation screen up. I then tried leaving it unplugged for about a day and when I plugged it back in the light was blinking and now that's all it does and I can't get it to turn on. The tech support people at replay said my HD is dead and that I have to replace it. If that's true than that's fine, but my question is, is there any way to get the recorded shows off the HD and backed up somewhere, or is there any way to tell if this problem can be fixed without losing my recorded shows? Any help with this would be great!
