DVR lockup Why does the DVR playback lock up and reset my system? I am thinking there is a problem with the harddrive. Is there a way to format the disk to fix problems or rest from scratch?

    My DVR just stops and resets itself almost every night. No one is even touching the remote. Is it failing? Ours is two years old, thanks.

There is a way to reformat your hard drive. This means all the programs and setting you have on your unit will be erased. Call DirecTV and let them know your issue and let them know you would like to reformat your hard drive and they can walk you through it. Make sure you are in front of it when you talk to them.

My DVR said the my harddrive was corrupt and it need to clean it's self so i let it, and it cleared everthing off my DVR. Now the guide will not load the shows about to come on it keeps saying "Info....


candgr15,

It's possible that after it did the formatting of the DVR it just needs to be reset. Unplug it for 5-10 seconds and plug it back in. It will reacquire signal and the guide.

If that doesn't work run a check switch test from Menu-> System Setup (6)-> Installation (1)-> Point Dish(1). Select check switch then test. Once it's done exit out.

I would also check your timers after the reset to make sure they're setup as they made have been deleted during the reformatting.

If the hard drive has been formatted it will not boot unless you install an operating system. If you had wanted to format and leave the disk able to boot the correct command is Format "Disk Letter":/S

I Have a Archos 605 wifi 30GB


You can try to connect to your computer with the usb connection. In case it shows up after some time in ´your computer´ as a regular old diskdrive, then you could try a chkdsk /f command, in order for fix a harddrive error, or reformat and download the firmware, and try to run that on your computer to the harddrive of the unit.

Wan't boot up


If the dvr isnt booting the harddrive, then the harddrive isnt seated properly in the removeable harddrive drawer, or the harddrive is improperly formated, or you have the wrong type of harddrive, or the master/slave settings on the harddrive are not set properly (master). what ive found is an 80gig/160gig is the most that these things will handle. and some brands work and some brands don't. and the harddrives have to be IDE/EIDE type drives. but it sounds like a harddrive interface problem. They like the older harddrive formatts/(not xp/vista)....good luck!!!!
