Thank you so much for posting these instructions!
My 8300HD started acting up about a year ago. Sometimes it would work fine, but sometimes it would just stop recording, and I would have to reboot. Eventually, the reboots didn't work, and I was getting ER51 and the dreaded countdown every time I tried to boot.
I thought I was going to have to buy a new PVR today. Instead, thanks to this thread, I bought a WD 320GB drive, and 30 minutes later everything was perfect! I lost all my recordings, but that's a heck of a lot better than having to spend $500 on a new PVR!
Thank you thank you thank you!
