I would like to dedicate this thread to the 9400 Internal Hard Drive replacement procedures, hardware and troubleshooting.

I will try to update the main post with all the important information collected.

So the drive in the 9400 is:
Seagate, Part Number 9GW144-264
Pipeline HD .2 1TB
SATA 3.0 Gbps
5900 rpms
3.5"

ST1000VM002 works in the 9400. I have tested it. From PEANO
It should format the drive when you power up the receiver.
BestBuy has the ST1000VM002 as do many other online retailers including Software City and newegg

Someone is selling Toshiba Replacement HD's for the 9400 as well. Not sure if they are right sized?

I found this out there . Have a look if it will help you recover a bad Hard Drive


Manual formatting procedure :
Accessing the memory dump screen:
Press Menu, 6 (System Setup), 3 (Diagnostics).
Within 5 seconds press Info, Browse, Theme.

Clear NVRAM:
<<You should be at the Memory Dump screen.>>
Press TV/Video.
A different screen will pop up telling you that you have erased the NVram.
Then just press the power button on the receiver.
You will lose all favorites, timers and customized settings.

You will lose all recordings!

SATA 3.0 Gbps

I was looking at Canada Computes and they have, for $60:
Item Code: HDSG002093 Part Number: ST1000DM003
Seagate Desktop HDD 1TB 3.5" SATA3 64MB Cache OEM Hard Drive (ST1000DM003)
Brand Seagate
Type Desktop Drives
Series Barracuda
Model ST1000DM003
Form Factor 3.5"
Capacity 1TB
Interface SATA 6Gb/s
Buffer Size 64MB
Average Latency 4.16ms
Rotational Speed 7200RPM
Height 146.99mm
Depth 20.17mm
Width 101.6mm

Does anyone know if this will be compatible?
-------
There appears to be a more compatible model for $83 at Canada Computes, model number ST1000VM002...it is listed as VIDEO 3.5 HDD on Seagate's Data Sheets..

Only differences that I can see are that is has a 64Mb cache, current HD has only 16Mb. It is 6.1mm thinner, and 200g lighter...all other specs are the same. It also states that these used to be called "Pipeline HD" so in essence it is the newer model of the three year old drive in my PVR...think I will get this one unless someone can tell me that it won't work...

Would also like some advice on what happens when the new drive is installed and I start it up...???

Share
----------------------------
The model number to exactly match one of the ones on the list. Even a different version number and it won't work. It has nothing to do with the specs. I think the model numbers are coded into the software and if it doesn't match it doesn't go.
------------------------------
ST1000VM002 works in the 9400. I have tested it.
----------------------
Now Canada Computers is saying that the drive I have ordered is now discontinued or Not Available...they are offering the Seagate ST1000VX001 as the replacement...anyone try this or know if it is compatible?
Not likely.
------------------------------------

BestBuy has the ST1000VM002 as do many other online retailers including Software City and newegg.

So my pvr is working and I consider this closed for me. If you have other HDs that work, please post the model #'s

I don't see why other HD wouldn't work, but I am not about to try other drives out as I don't have the resources . lol

However, for fun, if I do have a spare HD I may try to put it in and see if it works.

thanks

My HD drive, but I don't really care about its PVR capability. Is there any way to set this up a simple, non-PVR tuner? Thanks in advance.

I found a WD 1tb purple drive. Too bad that one wouldn’t work. I’m probably going to order two of the Seagate’s

My 9400 hard drive died so I ordered an ST1000VM002 from Amazon (https://www.amazon.ca/Seagate-Video-3-5-Inch-ST1000VM002-Black/dp/B0086R7MDM). While waiting for this drive to arrive tried a WD Green 1TB drive but it didn't work. Both are standard SATA drives but the 9400 seems to want this Seagate model which is not manufactured anymore and replaced by ST1000VN002. Didn't take a chance buying the newer model but maybe its ok too. When powered on with the ST1000VM002 drive, no messages came up about having to setup a new drive , it just worked like the old one.

"Green" drives often don't work in a PVR because they "spin down" when not active and the PVR will not spin them up again properly. Many PVRs require either a purple, black, blue or red drive to function properly.

Sometimes it's possible to connect a green drive to a computer and delete the "green" firmware that makes them spin down.

After putting it off for a year I finally swapped my Hard Drive out after the price dropped to $60. I didn’t even have to format it as it was recognized immediately upon start up. I’m thinking I’ll buy another HDD as a spare at that price.

Thanks for all the posts gents.

A Buddy of mine has a Dead PVR function on his 9400 (024 Error Screen as posted earlier) so I've ordered a Seagate 1 TB Video HDD Sata 5900 RPM 64 MB 3.5-Inch ST1000VM002 Hard Drive (as listed in this thread as a "good" one from Amazon for $80. ($76.99 total delivered => Shipping and handling was $36.99 => the HD was only $40. )

The inside of the PVR was pristine. I'll swap in the HD and hope it works!
