are the programs that are prerecorded on the external HDD?
Also yes you should be able to view the old recorded shows on the old HDD if they were recorded with that main unit.
Actually they should be showing and playing now.
Also yes you should be able to record on that external HDD still.
If you cant do those things, then the repair has been botched or they didnt repair everything that needed to be when it was serviced. So you woul will need to send this one back with a note explaining what the problems are. I know these systems all too well lol.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
