I am having a problem with the above PVR. I have been told I need to re-format the HD. The cable company tried to have me do this over the phone, but no success. How can I do this?

    The advice did not work. I would like to know if there is a way to re-format the Hard Drive.

  • mikeceri Jul 20, 2008

    My PVR is a "Pace TDC770D" with a internal hard drive - no external. I have the user guide that came with the unit and there is no mention of formating the HD. Hopefully you can find a way to format this unit.

    Didn't work. I'll call the service desk of the cable company. Thanks for the help.

Hi,

I am assuming that you are aware that formatting the internal harddrive would erase all contents. Additionally, formatting would serve no purpose if the hard drive itself is defective.

Hopefully a Motorola procedure would be compatible . To format the hard drive on Passport running on Pace products:
Enter Diagnostics - (these keys must be pressed within two seconds of each other)

  • Power
  • Select
  • Select
Format HDD (from the first page of diagnostics)
  • Repeat
  • LIST
  • LIST
  • LIST
  • LIIVE
Hope this be of initial help/idea and work out for your Pace TDC770D. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Do you mean the TDC775d Tahoe? I couldn't find any information about formatting the hard drive (does it have an internal hard drive?), but here is the user guide, which has some troubleshooting procedures starting on page 35.
If you are using an External hard drive with it, just connect it to your computer to format it. Right click on the drive in explorer and select "format".
Let us know if this helps

    from the link Votit posted:



    ...Besides component, optical, and HDMI, the rear panel has a NIC, *****TWO FIREWIRE PORTS, USB*****, and an eSATA port...


    Do you have the cable to connect your PVR to your computer? If you not, you will have to buy one in order to format the harddrive.

    If you have the connecting cable, let me know.

You can also reset the user settings to the factory defaults.
You use the L, R, U, D and select buttons on either the front panel or the remote control to make the settings. You check and change the settings by looking at your set-top’s front panel. You can also look at the on-screen menus, although please note, in some circumstances these may not be visible.

Hope that helps.........

Hi What partition file system does a HD PVR 2 P use to operated is it FAT 32 or NTFS


Your PVR will format a new drive. Go into the Hard Drive management section and there should be a "Format Drive" option.

Want to write out keepsake HD titles from my Panasonic HW-220 onto Dual Layer BD-R(W) discs for my personal collection, and to free up space/slots on the unit...


The video in the PVR is not in DVD or Blu ray format. You'll need software to convert the video format on the PVR to DVD first. there are several converters that will do that. Google video to dvd converters.

Hi, Your TV is set for HD but you will need a set top box. (PVR) You will need a digital decoder to recieve HD or digital channels. Talk to your cable or dish companies for more info. Good luck.

Okay you need to call the company and they will give you some firmware to download to your TV. Just tell them the same thing you told us about what the TV is doing.

CAN I HOOK THIS UP TO HD TV FEED WITH A PVR


henknm

If your PVR has an Optical Output then you will be able to hook that to your SONY DAV-S300. If it does not you will just be able to use the standard analog stereo connections. I included a picture of the Optical port on your SONY DAV-S300.

My tivo HD is not broadcasting or recording in HD


As far as I know, you need the cable cards to get HD through the Tivo, because they're what does the HD decoding and output.

How do you convert video to work on the PVR-H140?


The PVR h140 works on mpeg1 or mpeg4 format. If you need to convert avi files for example you will need a third party conversion programme such as Nero7 or similair free programmes. Check here for a 'how to' page. http://www.sharewareguide.net/article/Guide/guide:how-to-convert-video-to-mpeg4,-such-as-avi-to-mpeg4,-mpeg-to-mpeg4-and-vob-to-mpeg4-with-this-mpeg4-converter.html
