Pioneer DVR-450H-S HDD problem

The hard frive on my DVR-450H-S freezes up as well. This seems to be a known problem by the manufacturer, Nevertheless, they want to charge me a whoppy $250(!) for the replacement. The unit is only 1.5 years old.
Is this a highway robbery or what.....?

Well if it is out of warranty and there is no recall then you do not have much choice. How much does it cost for a new DVR with a warranty? Might be better to spend the extra money and get a new one with a warranty. If you have them repair it make sure they give you at least a 1 year warranty on it and not 90 days. And make sure the warranty covers parts and labor.

DVR 450h keeps freezing and says to get to a repair shop but how do i know where to get repair and would like to do it myelf, The disk is okay, i thinnk i need to download driver or something...thanx


Hi, I am a technician. to solve this problem you have to change a new hard drive or re-format the old one.
After replace or format you must have a pioneer service remote control in order to enter the serial number ID for bios system to recognize the hard drive and the DVD drive in the system, otherwise the recorder will not work at all with the new hard drive.

For more information you can e-mail me at

Hard drive shows full even after erasing 120 hours.


You should empty the recycled bin in the system and delete all temporary files on it.
