Hi margaretanne on Dec 02, 2008

I have a similar problem with mine. I find the battteries are loose, I remove the back of the remote, jiggle the batteries and press the button, and it works, until I drop the remote and the batteries loosen again.

SOURCE: Humax PVR 9200T freezing picture and will not turn off.

Unplug the aerial; switch the PVR On; if you have control via the remote do a reset to default settings thus:

1. press Menu on the remote
2. select Installation and enter default password of 0000 unless you have changed it
3. select Default settings and okay on YES
4. then turn if off again via the remote
5. plug the aerial back in and it will scan for channels, save them of course.

I got help on this from other forums but saw your request for help. This worked for me.

SOURCE: Problem with my sagem pvr 64160t

Powering on a Sagem 64160t after disconnecting the HDD will produce the problem that you are experiencing. Sagem build quality can be poor. After opening the case, carefully check the data and power connections to the HDD for joints that lack solder or that haven't been properly seated. If the connections are good then the problem lies with the HDD, which may have failed. Unfortunately, DIY Sagem HDD replacement can be problematic.

How to set up new hard drive DTR 6400T free view recorder


Try this;
1. Turn off the unit for 15 minutes to cause a full reset.
2. Turn on the PVR with everything attached except the antenna input.
3. You will get an Er09 on the display. No output on the TV screen whatsoever (totally black screen).
4. Press 'OK' on the remote (confusing as there is no clue that this is what you should be doing, though Sagem support thought that the PVR should prompt you.
5. The box reboots in standby mode.

The hdd is formatted as it is needed, much like a Mac. It uses RAW not NTFS, FAT etc.

PVR says HDD not detected.


Disk may have failed or become corrupted. If it's a few years old, its PSU capacitors are probably failing. This is repairable, but you may lose your recordings.

How to hook up to pvr


I imagine that the PVR does not recognize the formatting on the drive as it ships with the GUID partition scheme, and many of the PVRs probably need FAT32. Since the drive you have is 1TB, then you will need to use a Mac to re-format the drive as Windows can only format up to 32GB in FAT32. p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }div.Section1 { page: Section1; } To format the drive for cross-platform or PVR use, make sure that you have backed up all your data from the drive as formatting will destroy any data on the drive. First, connect the drive to your Mac, and open Disk Utility. Then select your drive on the left side of the window and choose the Partition Tab. Then change the Current Partition drop-down menu to 1 partition and click on the Options button. A new window will appear where you will choose Master Boot Record (MBR), then click OK. Then choose Free Space from the Format drop-down menu, click Apply, then OK. Your drive will now appear unformatted. Then choose the Erase tab, choose FAT32 as the Format, name your drive (you will be limited to 11 characters), and click Erase, then OK. Your drive will then appear on the desktop formatted for cross-platform use, and you can copy the data you need to move to your PC or PVR and then connect the drive to your PC or PVR. I hope this helps.

dissambling and taking the hard drive out of the dvr will most likely void the warrenty how it is possible.

once the hard drive is removed you may be able to plug it into your PC and gain access to the files on the hard drive. These how ever may be specially encoded and protected files that you cant open.

-you PVR may have also done a hard reset and formatted the hard drive. This would delete all the files on the PVR.

-unlike tapes, erasing a hard drive does not require you to record over it. just because nothing else has been recorded does not mean your data is still there. sorry.

Tried installing hdd from cctv dvr to save it's contents.....


Hi,

Most PVR's use a small linux micro operating system to run there menus and handle the drives, as such many of the drives used by them are formatted in Ext2/3. You will need to install a driver in windows that allows it to mount ext? drives and then you should have no problem accessing it. The link below will take you to a download site for a free driver, but they do ask you to donate. Please if it works throw them a bone as this is how they keep providing such useful software for all of us.

If this works, copy the files to your computer and then let the PVR reformat the drive, unfortunately when windows doesn't recognize the drive as being formatted, it marks it. That mark is messing with the PVR but after you add these drivers you should have no problem moving the drive back and fourth as it will recognize the drive and it's data in the future.
