Have an HR10-250 Directv Tivo unit that is stuck in "Cleaning and deleting" mode. Does this mean the hard drive has crashed; can it be fixed?

In Normal cases, it could take as long as 24 hrs.
else it is a case of dead hard drive

    If you have enough bad sectors to exceed the reclamation capacity of
    the drive, they will go back into the free sector list. If they're used
    for something critical, like file linking, it could cause the drive to
    go into excessive (virtually non-ending) retries. If you have a failing
    drive, the worst thing you can possibly do is erase things.

    If it's still going after 2 days(maximum time), try unplugging it for a few seconds
    and if still no go, replace the hard drive. You'll need an image and I
    suggest InstantCake.

I have a DirectTV DVR HR10-250 that I stopped the monthly service, and use it to watch free Off-the-Air broadcast HD channels. I can not seem to record them by default. Is there any way or "hack" that I...


in feb when free air signels become digatal you should then be able to record your programs because your box is set to a digatal format and will not record the old analog signels

Record


While we have the DishTV receiver/DVR, I suspect they are similar in principle.

You can't really do as you describe unless the unit has two individual tuners; some do, some don't. You'd need to check your manual to ldetermine that.

What you can do on all with the DVR function is watch a pre-recorded program since that comes from the hard drive, not the tuner.
This allows you to record one live and watch previously recorded material.

Tivo and direct tv


No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.

If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).

Good luck.

Once it goes to the black screen, try pushing the format button on the front of the unit until you get a picture.

Phsycadelic images


Most likely your HDMI card is defective. If you have a free component spot on your tv, use component. You'll get the same great picture as HDMI, just have to use 5 cables instead of 1. You also won't have to deal with the annoying HDCP problems and HDMI. If you do not have a free component slot, make sure your HDMI cable is securing (don't push hard) in the HDMI connector on the tivo and on the tv. Also, check your video settings to ensure they aren't cranked up from the factory, but 99% of the time, it's the bad HDMI card in the unit, which can be repaired. I recommend ccs corp in Indiana, I've used them in the past and they're great.

Stuck at "Welcome Powering UP"


It's most likely the drive. You can buy preconfigured kits or buy the software and hard drive and do it yourself.

You can send it out to CCS in Indiana and they'll test/repair what is necessary (if they can). Some of these units are very old and they aren't repairable, but they do their best and are very quick on turn around times.

Directv HR10-250 Reboots by itself, then get stuck rebooting


I found unplugging it helped.  Problem with that is that sometimes it deletes newly recorded shows.
