Turning Off 5100 vs Leaving it On

3447 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  billylo
I am wondering what is typically harder on the hard drive inside of the 5100: turning it off and on with regular use or just letting it run all the time. Seems like there's a lot of wear-and-tear on the drive if it keeps getting turned off and on over time. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Regards,
Dan

They should get rid of the Mxxtor drive and go with a WD or Seagate drive then it'll be very quiet in the PVR's.
