AAARRRGGGGGHHHHH! TDF-aholics PLZ HELP!

aaarrrgghhhh!
I had the entire TDF recorded on my DirecTV DVR, but hadn't downloaded it to my 'puter, yet.
Sunday morning the DVR had a hernia AND loses ALL of the recordings!
nothing to do except reformat the DVR drive and try to catch the last stage
AARRRRRGGGHHHH!
So I'm panhandling for any 'handouts' from any others who have ANY portion of the TDF recorded - any format, any media... VHS, BETA, DVD.
Willing to do anything to get any stage or weekly recap footage any of ya'll have, un-edited is fine/great!
If you have any of the TDF recorded and can either burn to DVD or dupe a tape, PLZ ping me and lets work a way to get a copy. You will be handsomely rewarded...

Help me BF50+rs, you're my only hope...

Dnvr - OLN is to have a recap called "The Men Who Would Be King" airing on either the 29th or 30th. Check you local listings.

Do you On Demand from your cable system? OLN provides about 4 stages of past days on my cable provider for free.

Thanks for the references Guys, I was planning on a 14-15hr (6 DVD set) and a 'shortened' 3hr set so the 12hr 'Cycling' set from Denver's post might be good - I'll also check DirecTV to see if there are any replays available. Quite the price, but considering the amount of edit time to complete my set (and not having the video files anymore...) its prolly worth.
This coming Sunday's 1hr special on OLN - Sunday 7PM EST & again 1AM? EST - is set to record; AND I've already setup to digitize it direct to the computer. I guess I should have done that right away and not relied on the DVR to hold the files for convenience. I'll be smarter for the future.
I also lost my weekly GIRO recap files
This TDF felt like the good ole daze, looked forward to every stage with hopes of something new and interesting, I wuzn't disappointed.

The only thing I saved was the 17th stage. I was so surprised and inspired, I copied it from dvr to dvd. Everything else got deleted after I watched.

Hey Bud, I'm still determined to 'compile' my own version, and I may have acesss to some earlier stages in the Pyrenees as well.
SO, if there's a way I can get a copy of your stage 17, then the stages I still need would be 15(L'Alpe d'Huez) & 16(La Toussuire), but getting 17 would be key!

I'm going to PM you as well as this note here on the board, on the hope we can work something out.

Anyone else with ANY other stages, including afore mentioned Pyrenees or TTs, you contribs would be appreciated and rewarded with a 'personal use' set of whatever I come up with...

Will edit out all commercials, but try to keep some of the juicier '4stooges' commentary and banter in...
waddaya say?
