Hi

I have a SA 8300 HD with known compatible external HDD. I've plug my PVR + external HDD to a UPS.

here is symptom, sometime when I try to play a program I came back to the default screen that ask "press list" or exit. That happened when my hdd was not plugged into the ups. From what I have understand it's because the HDD boot AFTER the PVR so it lost it's connectivity.

Now, everything is plug into the UPS and I decided to reboot my pvr since it been a while.

I have turn off pvr, remove power cord, wait few second, turn off external hdd, wait few second, power up the hdd, wait about 10 seconds, and power up the pvr.

my program list was there but I wasn't able to play ANY program

then I've tried also to boot without external hdd, same problems

another boot with hdd plugged and same problems

had to reformat everything...

did I did something wrong ?

Most of the information on SA 8300HD and external hard-drives is in the "HDTV Recorders Forum"
