The problem I have with my 5040 is that while watching a show it starts to repeat itself and then eventually it freezes up. I was told two delete the channel guide and then reenter it ,I did and it continues to do what it did before. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do next. Thank you so much in advance for your time.

I had that problem. Took the hard drive out, tried all the diags, reimaged it. None of that helped.


After replacing the drive with a new, bigger one, the problem never returned.

hard drives are the only moving part in a computer ( fans dont count! ) and they are allmost allways the very first thing to go bad .. that being said their are plenty of utilities out their to "repair" bad spots on drives .. but the going rate for HD's is now down to $0.50 a gig so it makes no sence spending $60 on a professional utility to "fix" your drive ( thats going south anyway ) when for the same priice you can get a spanking new 120G .


becideds .. old drives have some of the strongest magnets i have seen .. keeps kids busy for days.
