Press the up or down arrow keys until "d13 DVR/HDD STATUS" is highlighted.

Press OK/SELECT to bring up the "DVR/Hard Drive Status" screen, then press the down arrow key once to go to the second page. The current and highest hard drive temperature readings will show up, near the bottom of the screen.
Hmm, cable DVR RC's OK/Select button doesn't do anything when I hold it down. I do see DVR's LED status show "IR" text when I hold it down. Am I doing it wrong or did TWC remove it?

Ah, it worked if the DVR is already powered on and see its blinking mail icon in the DVR's status screen, and then its up/down button.

I see D13's page 2 showing:
120F 49.0C
No Over Temp
Max: 127F 53.0C

Nice, SMART sensors. Too bad we can't export these easily to a text file.

That sounds about right for the 3510.

Cool. I hope this DVR was designed to handle that hot. It will be mid 90s degrees this weekend.

Tonight, my Arris DVR (Navigator) needed a power cycle because:

1. Its on demand kept saying unavailable and to retry later when I scroll down its TV shows even though I can see stuff. However, I wasn't able to play anything.
2. DVR wouldn't play of my recordings (tonight's and a few days ago).

I last used it was a couple nights ago to watch my recordings. I had to powercycle it and wait about five/5 minutes. Regular power off and on didn't fix the issues I ran into earlier.

I remember Motorola cable boxes, with their iGuide, had problems too that needed to power cycle (didn't have to wait long).

What about the rest of you guys? Thank you in advance.
