I've got the disk more than half filled with stuff I still want to watch at will.
Hats off to the dude that figured out how to do the downgrade!!!!!
This is my response to CM customer service.
Thank you for your suggestion.
Unfortunately, a factory reset did not solve the problem. A factory reset does not solve all problems.
Please pass this info to the technical team.
This is the message I get upon startup after the system has been off (actually in standby) for greater than 15 minutes:
"A fault has occurred with your external storage device and DVR functionality has been disabled. Please remove the external device to enable internal storage."
This message never appeared under 114R, only after upgrading to 123/124R. I suspect it has to do with the auto spin-down of my WD 2T RED drive in a USB enclosure. I have attached a Samsung USB drive (no auto spin-down) and the message never appears under 124R.
I suspect something was done in 124R to make it less tolerant of a <1 second HDD wake-up time.
At this point, it is more attractive for me to revert back to 114R than stay with 124R and lose the ability to use my current drive with 6 mo worth of programs.
I hope you can fix this problem. I would like to benefit from all new/improved DVR+ features available with SW upgrades.
