Didn.t have problem with184 but have problem with 185 with lag in remote response .Seems like I need to push buttons twice for the desired response.

I do have one question though. Is there a similar benefit on 750GB drives? My test was run on a 750GB EHD, not 1TB.

To explain:
Tonight I deleted the files that I had used to fill up the 750GB drive. I wanted to see how the time remaining would be affected. It took 16.25 HD hours of deletes before the HD remaining hours changed back from 0 (to 0:43 hrs:mins).The SD remaining hours at this point were 81:27. The SD hours started returning after 6 hours of HD deletes.

After the deletes I have 110 GB free on the 750GB drive (106/197 on partition 3).

My 1TB drive has 180GB free on the third partition for 7.5 HD hours remaining.

Seems like similar numbers for the 2 drives.

So with a 1TB drive the newly aquired space only amounts to an additional 7.5 hrs of HD programming for 160-180 GBs? that's 21-24 GBs per hour. Seems pretty high. Can anyone confirm this stuff?

A 1TB drive provides about 30 hours more HD space than a 750GB drive. (IIRC, the numbers are about 120hr vs 90hr but that may have changed with changes in encoding.) There may be other things going on with andyk's drive such as drive table corruption or a possible bug with SD programming.

BTW, 1.5TB drives also work with the 9242 and provide double the capacity of a 750GB drive or about 180hr HD.

I wasn't saying you only got 7.5 hours more. I was saying the number of hours available on the drive is a conservative estimate and that when it says you have 0 hours left, there is space available which you can use by continuing to archive until you finally get a "drive full" message. The number of hours just stays at 0 while you do this.

If they didn't do it this way, you would run out of space with some hours still remaining, which would generate a lot of complaints.

Thanks Bob and Andy. I just wanted to know roughly how many hours I had past 0 on a 1 TB drive and that seems to have answered my questions. 15 more movies woo hoo.

My experience is exactly the opposite. The drive has run out of space when it reached 0 hours. Maybe they changed this to get around the drive full bug, maybe it's an artifact of other changes or maybe the drive has some corruption.

I wouldn't continue to archive after the drive reaches 0 hours. I wouldn't even archive until it reaches 0 hours. A lot of people have been affected by the 'drive full bug' which causes loss of everything on the drive. It has not been reported recently but my experience is that bugs are usually not totally eliminated on these PVRs.

I'm surprised that I've only seen you two guys and a Princie1 comment on these EHDs. You'd think there would be more discussion about this and 1 TB drives.

It would be nice to see a poll on the site that asked how may people have had their drives corrupt or suffered from data loss after they archived past 0:00:00 and who was able to access the additional drive space. Maybe Hugh could make this happen.

This is an outdated thread. It was replaced by the v185 thread some time ago and that was replaced by the v186 thread more recently. There is also a thread for EHD issues which might be more appropriate.

Anyone can post a poll. The only exception may be very new members. Any poll would need to be qualified by the firmware release to make it significant.

My experiences with drive losses relate to earlier firmware, mostly prior to v184. Drive corruption reports have diminished significantly since then. I haven't managed to completely fill up the EHD since v184 was released, nor do I want to.

LOL, looks like I'm too new to create a poll. I probably haven't got enough posts yet. I'll just have to keep commenting until I reach "Poll" status. I wonder what dancers have to do to reach "Pole" status?
