Any possibility you got hacked? If someone got through your router they could have done any amount of damage, none of it predictable.

Although, from your description, I would suspect some kind of power outage/spike. Don't discount malice, though.

Yea sounds like a power spike.  But as far as the tuners go.  I would take the pvr-500's and put them into a windows machine just to see if they work properly in windows.  If not, call Hauppauge, they are great at repairing damaged pvr's.  I have sent back 2 pvr-250's that were definelty older than 2yrs and they fixed both.  Also, my first pvr-500 had 1 bad tuner in it (recorded but like the signal was messed up), sent that back and they repaired.
