DVR software

Am looking for a solution for an Explorer 8300HD DVR. I replaced the harddrive this weekend and now the display keeps scrolling through h + numbers never getting to the point of displaying the time. Am guessing it is looking for software updates from Rogers? Putting the old drive back in does not solve the problem. Thoughts anyone.

Hello @Old_school


Thank you for your post and welcome to the Forums.


Have you checked out the Spotlight: SA8300HD PVR Hard Drive Dead post here?

Re: DVR software

@Old_school There is also a long thread on Digitalhome on replacing the 8300 hard drive you should look at. These use IDE drives, which are hard to find anymore these days and some work better than others.
