then the screen goes blank and the hard disk makes a few clicking sounds and then
the power seemed to go off and nothing shows up on the screen.

Am I doing something wrong such as this HD drive is too big for this model? But then
I also tried this 1TB drive on my other Magnavox 320MB MDR513H unit, but I got the same blank screen too.
Any ideas or suggestions why this is happening? I will appreciate any feedback.
The last step in upgrading HDDs is to select the HDD drive then press REC and record ~10 sec of anything. That sets up the HDD menus for use.

In a previous version the links were not dependent on that number, so that's why wajo has a note in his signature to use 30. That 30 was also done because this BBS gets very slow if you change the default to 40 or 50 posts per page. I use 40, so if I post a link, I modify the link to work without your default needing to be 30. There are a few options found in the User CP that can be changed.
Ohhhh, ok. All I did was right click that 'permlink' and get the shortcut then paste it in the post.

God Bless,

Yes, that is what I am seeing, correct aspect ratio, but less cropping on the sides. One last note - those miniboxes run quite hot, don't stack anything on top of them.
