Rogers 8642 External SATA Drive Upgrade

I just wanted to confirm that I have successfully upgraded my Rogers 8642 box with an External SATA drive. My 8642 has an existing 500GB internal drive, and I didn't want to lose my existing recordings or bother with trying to clone the drive.

The external drive that I used is a Western Digital Black WD1003FZEX in a Vantec NexStar 6G NST-366SU3-BK Enclosure, and it is working well so far.

I have a problem with my neighbour's 9865HD Nextbox. Setting up a new TV, I must've disconnected the external drive I'd installed years ago. Although the Nextbox has power, the power button is dark and has no effect. The display is also blank. The TV gets no output from the box.

I disconnected power, reconnected the drive, reconnected the power cord. No effect. I did the same while keeping the power button pressed; still no effect.

What should I do now?

1. Make sure the power adaptor for the 9865 is properly plugged in at both ends.

2. Make sure the RF-coax is properly connected to the proper input on the 9865.

3. Try it without the eHDD connected.

4. When you power up the box you should see "boot" or some numbers, etc on the box display.
