PACE 758D Freezing Using Non-Shaw External HD
I'm hoping somebody could help me out. Based on the previous postings here, I went ahead and got myself a PACE DC758D from shaw, and used a Western Digital 500GB HD with a Vantec eSATA enclosure (cause really, who wants to dish out $200 to SHAW for a 1TB external HD).
Everything worked great in the beginning. The 758D recognized the external HD and I was recording shows happily, but lately the cable box started freezing during playback of my recorded shows, and it's also freezing during recording of my shows while I'm watching another channel. It would reboot by itself after freezing, and I would lose all my guide listings, and I would have to wait for all my guide listings to download again.
I called up SHAW technical and they said that it was my Non-Shaw external HD that could be causing the freezing because the "configuration" on my WD/Vantec drive is not the same as their SHAW external PVR drive, and that could be causing a conflict with the cable box, thus freezing. Does anybody have the same experiences with their Non-SHAW external HD? Any advice and/or feedback would be greatly appreciated.
