If your 8300 died, consider just replacing the hard drive and then supplementing it with an eSATA.
Thanks, I gather that, but don't understand why the box would work fine for a short while (hours) then suddenly start dropping sound...it's not as if the box is updating hourly. Of course I don't pretend to understand what the software is actually doing.

I thought of trying to replace the HD in the 8300 but I don't think it was the HD. Besides, for $180 I can get a refurb 8300HD with a 2-year warranty...which is worth it to me. Hopefully by the time two years go by Rogers will have something that works!
