Don't forget Purple! They're popular for continuous running surveillance DVRs. I've not read of anyone using a "Purple" in a DTVPal but seems it would be a good one too.

The bare drive comes in a sealed antistatic plastic bag, nothing else. You simply unplug the old and plug in the new. Use existing screws. Hardest part will be getting the case off the 'Pal.

Oh yeah.. Retro on 31.4. It's been so unreliable I'd just about forgotten about it. Guess I'll tune in while it's up.

Normal. Since TV Guide stopped the OTA service a few years ago our 'Pals now depend whether the station sends out program info and for how many days. Some barely 12 hours, others a few days. Many of...

Was it your receiver or theirs? Since the local stations make them all pay for carrying, they want to collect that fee and profit from everyone they can.

So how much does TWC charge for the "digital adapter" ?

Oh you want AUDIO with your VIDEO! Yep they've been messed up all weekend. I guess the personnel who take care of the technical issues don't actually watch or even occasionally monitor the station.

Ah I bet it happened when I was selecting "PIP" mode on the Dish 722, that button also operates the SYS INFO function of the Pal DVR. Still not sure how that changed the address code.

I prefer the fan blowing IN the way indicated since it directs the cooler ambient air over the HDD first.

Have you tried a new C34 yet? Old one doesn't necessarily have to look bad to be bad.

I replaced my old failed Nichicon 2200uF 10V with a new Panasonic "FM" series Low ESR 2200uF 16v. Mine hasn't...

Different symptom that mine was having too. Mine began to occasionally freeze and lock up but always recovered from a re-boot, never stuck in "Loading...". Good luck!

Probably wait until the DST change this weekend and it may straighten itself out. You will probably have to delete and re-enter timers as they may get screwed up in the process. Just one of the bugs.
