Motorola pvr 6416 III hooked up with Cogeco

I am wondering is there any way to read units serial # and other details on the TV screen.

1. Make sure tv is ON
2. Make sure power to box is OFF
3. Press select/ok on center of remote to bring up diagnostics

I have 2 Motorola pvr's and 1 has a bad hard drive and i have a couple questions:
a) can I take the hard drive out of one and install it in the other ?

b) after the transition and the pvr is hooked up to Cogeco and communicating with the transplanted hard drive. Will it show serial # of first unit or existing unit

Thanks

PVR drives are bonded to a specific unit. You can swap the drive, but it will be formatted when the new box boots up (so recordings would be lost)

can these hard drives be removed and used as an external hard drive for my computer ?

No, the drives are encrypted and cannot be read outside the PVR
