ReplayTV skipping and deleting shows :(

296 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  johhhn

I think I've had my ReplayTV 40G for less than a year now and recently it's been skipping and freezing a lot-- it'd get so bad I would have to reboot it.

Today, after another reboot- it was frozen on startup from when it tried rebooting itself I guess- it came up but BAM, none of my shows were there! Completelly erased :( The network settings, etc., were still there, but 100% of the shows gone.

And it's still skipping.

Any idea what's going on and what my options are?

 l8er has alot of great info you should read.

Also, there are many other discussions on bad hard drive replacements.

John, what you describe is typical of a failing hard drive, which, by the way, is the most common part to fail in any ReplayTV. I strongly suggest you replace the hard drive before doing anything else. If you're interested in buying one ready to boot I offer them www.replaytvparts.com. 18er also has a web site to aid do it yourselfers www.replaytvupgrade.com
