Hi,

Pls verify that the new HDD is set as "Master: Additionally, most DVRs have a built-in "Format" command/feature that will format the drive to the appropriate manner.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My dvr worked fine for several months and then all of sudden it stopped recording Could it be that the hard drive just stopped recording because of failure?


Hi there,
the HDD is a common component to fail in a DVR.
The DVR Itself should actually tell you the status of the storage device if you navigate the menu.

I could probably assist you remotely to find out if you like?

format on the new hard drive has to be in FAT32 new hard drives are not formatted. psu should be fine as long as the fan is working and none of the capacitors have blown. the way you are doing. putting the cable on slave drive after is just making it a dead drive and is not being read at all from the system. when installed properly it will start up and a message should come on the screen 5 seconds after the cameras are seen on the screen to say new drive and merging files. then it puts 2 folders on the slave drive for recorded film files and advents .

Connect satellite receiver to dvd recordrer


there is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.

Set HDD to master


The internal power supply to the HDD is often suspect in these units. Check you have power on the internal plug to the HDD from the circuit board. if you do not Try fitting an external HDD power supply (£15) this cured my unit which had a similar fault.
Hope this helps - good luck.
