Hi Folks:
My 3 month old dtv pal failed in the same manner as my old one. When trying to access recordings, it pauses and goes through a reboot. I have no access to my recordings.

I hope that the wisdom of this forum has an answer. My replacement failed at one day short of the three month mark and I'm sure there's no avenue for warranty repair as I bought from a distributor on ebay.

Thanks in advance
Mark

Mark, I just went through the same thing (except for the pausing part; when I tried to get to My Recordings the unit would reboot immediately) and we've been discussing it on the main DTVPal DVR thread.

A soft reboot didn't help, cycling the power didn't help, a Factory Defaults reset didn't help, and leaving the power disconnected for twenty-four hours didn't help.  What finally cured it was a reformat of the drive (which erased the recordings but hell, they weren't accessible anyway).

You can check the discussion interspersed among the last couple of dozen posts in that thread.
