you did clear the nvram when you did that and it says non-volatile memory has been corrupted. when you are told to unplug it is at this time that you put your new hard drive in and then plug the power back in and let the 9241 do its thing and will figure out the new hard disk own its own (mind you im certain you are matching the new drive to ensure it is compatible in the list of approved drives)

M3repair that worked! I thank you so much. I didn't realize that when I saw the non-volatile memory has been corrupted message that the replacement hard drive had to be connected after unplugging the power. I thought I needed to see NVRam cleared before doing this.

Can't get hard drive to format

I am stumped with a problem I am having with another one of my 9241 receivers. The hard drive went on it and I ordered a replacement on EBay. While I had the case open I changed a few of the caps that were bulging and the rest of the known problem ones also that weren’t showing signs of bulging yet just to be proactive. I have cleared the NVRam according to suggestions and installed the replacement hard drive. I won’t format the drive on its own and when I go to the memory dump screen and press Play, Play, return (the config dump screen pops up even before I get to press Return) I get the message that the hard drive is being cleaned and not to disturb the process and it will reboot upon completion. The system does reboot 3 times with that same hard drive is being cleaned screen appearing for two of the boots. On the third boot it goes to the 311 error screen about hard drive error. I have tried going back into the memory dump screen and doing the short HD test by pressing Pause, 1. It completed the test and all smart results passed. I also tested the drive attached to a PC and it passed all tests. I created a partition and then wiped the drive. But still no luck getting the 9241 to format it. Not sure why it can see the drive, clean it, pass the HD test but I can’t get it to format. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I thought of that but didn't want to touch the other system as it is working fine and I just changed the caps and hard drive on that one about a month ago. Didn't want to jinx that one! :)

Hello All! Thanks for the helpful posts in here. Has anyone been trying currently available drives? I've tried the Seagate Pipeline (Optimized for PVR) ST2000VM003 HDD which appears to be a newer iteration of their optimized for PVR drive, for which the 1TB version was reported working at an old firmware level. I've also tried a 1TB WD10EACS as I have a few of them. Neither will work.

My procedure is:
1. Connect HD to windows computer
2. Delete All partitions
3. Use software like Micronit Data Wiper Free or Sea Tools for Windows (Seagate drives) to do an "Erase Overwrite" to fill the drive iwth 0s.
4. Clear NVRAM (Menu, 6, 3, Info, Browse, Themes, TV/Video)
5. Pull power plug on receiver and install drive
6. Boot up (Unfortunately, I do not get the drive format prompt and force formatting or waiting overnight do not make a difference.)

I can get another Toshiba 1TB from another Bell receiver to work. To eliminate any file system issue, I tried cloning the Toshiba into a 2TB as above, but my working Toshiba has bad sectors I need to deal with.

I am doing this with a 9400, but I have not found a list of compatible drives for it like I have here, so hoping they are the same. (Or perhaps not through trial)
If anyone knows any modern drives, even 2TB drives that can work, I'll appreciate a heads up.

Thanks,
Mike
