    My Foxsat-HDR/500GB has been going wrong for some time, dropping the satellite signal with increasing frequency. As a last-ditch attempt to fix the problem I tried a factory reset, but it didn't help and without a signal, whenever I turn it on, it demands to be tuned and won't let me access the recordings menu.

    I've now replaced it with a 1100S which gets the signal fine. However, there are a few recordings I'd like to recover from the old box if possible. I believe you can do this by moving them to a USB thumb drive and from there to the new machine.

    However, since my old box won't get a signal, and won't let me get to the recordings menu without being tuned into signal, I have no idea how I can go about it. Is there any way I can either get the recordings menu without tuning the box, or move the recordings any other way?

    Can you get to any part of the menu or are you stuck on the "WIZARD" for first set-up?
