Like many others I have the dreaded "The channel is scrambled or not available" appearing along with a now noisy hdd. To keep SWMBO happy over the holidays I bought a new T2. However 100+ films on the old one now need to be saved. My plan is to buy a 2tb hdd (either standalone or internal with a caddy) for transfer and future backup, and a 1tb to replace the duff one in the machine. Can anyone recommend a hdd that they have used in a similar situation and is currently available. I believe they need to be a certain specification? Also would having usb3 be worthwhile on the backup hdd for transferring to pc/laptop?
