6131 PVR losing USB drive connectivity
Would anyone know what could be causing the disconnection of the external hard drive (EHD) from the 6131 receiver? I have a 500GB HDD in a Vantec Nexstar enclosure.
I'm not sure whether the 2 year old receiver is going, USB cable, HDD enclosure or the HDD itself.
We will be watching something from the PVR and it will flash a message that the USB drive removed, rebooting receiver.
It will reboot and start back up again. Sometimes with the EHD installed and sometimes not. Last night it reset 3 times in a row when ever I tried to select a TV show to watch from the PVR list, it would say USB drive removed and then reset again.
I am suspecting the receiver going only because we have had to reset the receiver by holding the front power button 2 times this week because it wouldn't come out of screen save. It had that Bell blurb on screen but no lights were on the receiver. Normally we press "select" and it starts up but nothing worked until I reset the receiver. Happened 2 times now this week. Then the intermittent lose of USB EHD connection is really starting to p*** me off.
And no PVR means life isn't worth living... TV wise. :-) Live TV with commercials sucks.
Anyone have any ideas? Thx
