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.

when it says you have 0 hours left, there is space available which you can use by continuing to archive
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This is an outdated thread.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?
