Cisco 8642HD Disk Trouble

I've Been Here Awhile

Hi all - I'm new here, so I apologize if there is already a thread around this. 


I was watching TV the other day with no problems. But yesterday, I come home from work and turn on the PVR to get this message: 

Disk trouble

There are problems with the program storage disk

Recording and playback are not available at this time


I have the NextBox Cisco 8642HD. The guide has also reverted to the old version, before the upgrade.... I have tried rebooting, several times, in fact. 


Does anyone have any experience with this problem? Have I just lost all of my recorded shows? 


Thanks in advance for your help!

You should probably bring the PVR back for a replacement ... it sounds like there is a serious hardware problem.


Re: Cisco 8642HD Disk Trouble

I would think from the guide thing... that it was just a roll back.. but maybe accidently... but with that warning message.. sound alot more like it is failing.  I agree, with the taking it back for replacement (if its rented)

Thank you for your responses. I had the PVR replaced... lost a week's worth of shows. Disappointing, but weird thing is, when I asked about the guide rollback, they said the update was never on my account, even though I had been using the new guide for over 2 months. 


Re: Cisco 8642HD Disk Trouble

Huh.. odd..


Maybe with whatever happened.. if something failed, and it auto reverted back.. sent something back to their end which updated their records, at least what is CURRENT on the account.

But that shouldnt effect a log of the past, saying X, Y, Z happened.
