I have an HR22 receiver from DirecTv. I just bought a 2 TB Verbatim Pro 2-disk external hard drive. Last night, I set the drive to RAID-0, turned off an unplugged the receiver, powered up the external drive, plugged the external drive into the receiver, and powered the receiver on.
I got the "just a moment" and "just a few more seconds" messages (paraphrased), and then the "receiver running self-check" message came on. And stayed on. Permanently. After about 20 hours (when I got from from work the next day), I was still getting the same message. I couldn't power the receiver down or do anything else with it. I finally hit the red reset button, and the same thing happened. So I hit the red reset button again, disconnected the external hard drive, and let it boot up on the internal hard drive (which worked just fine).
Any suggestions on how to fix my problem? I'm guessing it's not the esata cable because when it was plugged in the receiver bypassed the internal drive.
I've read that some drives simply don't work with the directv receivers--has anyone else used a Verbatim drive?
P.S. Sorry if this should be in another thread. I've tried to research my problem on here, but didn't find a satisfactory answer (if there is one already, please point me to it!)
