Well, I didn't think that I was having a hard drive problem but it may be so. I was watching last night with no problems but in the middle of the evening the box switched to PCM from DD. Since I was recording I waited until he recordings were finished and I was ready for bed and rebooted the NB3. After rebooting everything was back to normal and I turned off the TV and went to bed.
This afternoon I went to watch TV only to find the Er99 message on the box. I did a hard reboot and the box went through the boot cycle until it got to the 42% point with the rotating circle at the bottom right corner of the screen. It then rebooted and kept rebooting, never getting to,that rotating circle. It rebooted 5 or 6 times before the Er99 message reappeared. I unplugged the box for 5 minutes and then tried rebooting again. Same result. Looks like I will need to replace the box but it's a pain in the a$$ because the hard drive was 40% full including all of season 4 of Game of Thrones.
Is there another solution to replacing the box? I seem to recall some discussion about the Er99 message, either on this thread or another one but can't seem to,find it.
