I have a Sony SAT-T60 unit that displays the message in the subject line. I have had the T60 since it was introduced on the market. Sony sent this unit as a replacement for original unit that was stuck on the "we're almost there" message. The replacement unit has worked flawlessly until Sunday. It will only display the error message. No DirectTV or TIVO, just a black screen with the error message. Can you transfer the lifetime from a Series 1 DirectTIVO to a Series 2 DirectTV w/ TIVO unit? Hopefully, the message is an indication that the hard drive is dead as I was planning to replace it with a higher capacity drive anyway. Has anyone experienced this error message? Am I on the right track? Or do I need to send it back to Sony ........ again? DAGGONIT!
