SA8000HD Sick


My SA8000HD DVR seems to be sick....I think the harddrive is going bad.

Last night while watching a recording...it started stuttering and then rebooted. Fortunately, I had recorded the show in SD on my ReplayTV, so I could watching the ending.

This evening, trying to settle down in front of the tube after a long day working volunteering at the Ohio State Mathcounts.....I found that a movie that it should've recorded in my absense was recorded in pieces as it seemed to reboot a few times during it.

Tried watching other seemingly complete recordings to only run into other issues elsewhere....seems certain DVR functions make it workse, such as pretty INFO or pausing. an HD channel makes the crash sooner.

Even just watching live TV will eventually cause it to reboot. Like as it fills up the live tv buffer...it eventually hits the bad spot and bring it crashing down.

I guess it is time to call TWC and see about getting it replaced....and I was just thinking the other day that it might be time to become a 2 HD-DVR household. Though the lack of ABC-HD and FOX-HD on TWC is kind of holding me back (compounded by the fact that there is not going to be anymore Dead Like Me on Showtime-HD)....

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
