I noticed today that my HDMI switching receiver can actually wake up my PVR. Note not power-on but you can hear the drive spin up when my receiver input is changed. Since many members are having trouble with their iHDD (and eHDD) spinning up and down constantly, it is possible the HDMI is interfering with the sleep funtions. It would be worth your time to temporarily disconnect the HDMI cable and see if the drive calms down.

Let me know if you have any luck. I put this in a separate thread because if it turns out to be a red herring I don't want to dilute the existing thread with incorrect information.

57 has noted previously that his PVR spins up when an HDMI device connected to it is turned on, and I've had it happen too.

However, my mother has an old SD CRT TV hooked up to an 8300HD. The connection to the TV is via S-video and stereo audio cables. No other outputs are connected. The iHDD still spins up and down continuously.

Ok, Thanks for confirming it occurs via analog. I assume you mean ON = spin up.

I will close this thread shortly.

Another confirmation Jake, my PVR is attached via component cables to the TV and the spin up/down has been a regular activity since the latest firmware update.

Dan the two cases mentioned are only connected to the PVR via component or s-video. No HDMI. Thanks guys. Closing.
