sounds about right....thanks...The problem with installing an SSD into a PVR is that there is a finite number of read/writes to an SSD, whereas a mechanical drive will pretty much hum away forever.
The nature of a PVR is to record/watch/delete/repeat so although an SSD is great for a computer...not so good for a PVR unless...you intend on using the PVR for archiving.
Just using a USB stick in the front port. I left the unit in the stream overnight and today after work it was on the screensaver. Still think the hard drive is shot. Going to try and format the drive. It's the Seagate ST1000VM002 with sc11 firmware. I'm have issues finding a sc11. Is there another that is guaranteed to work or is just a chance you take?Which USB trick are you speaking of? I had the same problem a few years ago. Plugging in a USB stick did not work but connecting a real USB HDD did get the PVR out of its funk, which allowed me to erase the NVRAM. There was nothing wrong with the internal HDD.
The unit has since been sold but as far as I know it's still working.
