Question about Panasonic PV-HS2000 Showstopper 30-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

PV-HS2000 lost its brain

I have a PV-HS2000 bought in 2003 and upgraded hard drive (from Weaknees.com when the original drive crashed.) The upgrade worked fine for about two years, now the machine won't connect to the phone system and get the progamming info. The clock is several hours off; the programming just shows blanks. I've listened in on the connection and it sounds like it's reaching the modem on the other end, but for some reason it is not acquiring the information. Any ideas? Can it be fixed? It's a lifetime subscription, so I would like to revive the machine if I can.

Call first the provider, to ensure it is not their problem.

If you dont find anything else try doing the software update again.

IR Blaster Code for DirecTV D12-300 Satellite Receiver


After digging around for awhile, the only onfo I could gather was that teh D12 uses the same codes as the D10 & D11, but could not get those codes, I am still looking around and will post any other info I may aquire. I would also suggest re-trying any codes for echostar. I can tell you this as I sell that equipment in my market and echostar provides the equipment and support for techs, installers, and retailers. Anyway Good Luck for now

Check out the website of Weaknees.com.

They sell Upgrade Kits& larger hard drives for DVRs.

Go to their site and click on DVR Hard Drives... they will ask for the make and model number of your DVR and offer additional and/or replacement Hard Drives for your specific DVR.

They also offer (2) Upgrade Services:

(1.) for $49 they will install your additonal or new Hard Drive

(2.) for $79 they will copy all your setting AND programming to the additional or new Hard Drive.

I have dealt with them before and their email customer service is one of the best I've ever experienced.

Good luck!!!

Yes, your hard drive has developed bad sectors. It will most likely need to be replaced. I am going through the same problem right now myself.
