Admittedly replying to an old thread. I replaced the hard drive in an 8300 320GB and now it endlessly counts h numbers. Putting the old hard drive 160GB back in does the same. Of course Rogers was no help. Got a few replies that had things to look at but no luck. Was going to try the cable shop in Scarborough but they do not service them anymore. If it was my newer drive, I would have thought the old one would have worked when I put it back in but no luck.
Any thoughts out there or am I committed now to replacing it with a newer box? From what I have read some like the 8642 better than the 3.0?
