I know there has to be a way...
I want to know technical details about my PVR....
Hard disk Space
Hard disk size
Does it report Disk errors... like a Pc and indicate if space is lost to errors ?
Software version (OS)
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
1. On the box itself (not using the remote):
- Power Off the STB
- Press and hold the Vol+ and the Info buttons for several seconds
- The diagnostic screen will pop up
2. This takes you to all kinds of information.
There is another way without powering off the unit.
Press & hold the "SELECT" button unitl a little envelope looking icon shows up in the display. Then press info. This will bring up the diagnostic screens. You can then use the Page "+" & "-" buttons to page throught the many different screens.
When done, press EXIT to return to normal viewing.
Thanks, perfect, exactly what I was looking for.... yes it does work on the 8642

Yes I went out of my way to type this out, but I like to troubleshoot so this is the area (comparing versions) I would be looking at. I also doubt there is any personal data here as this is all version info ( some screens show IP/ MAC).
So where does it say in the tech info the PVR size aka GB's?? I was told by the rep at the rogers store that mine was 500GB, where would I see/confirm that??
