I appreciate that some people hear their PVR hard drives spinning and searching. I don't. It's where I sleep and I hear all kinds of things, the furnace, fridges, freezers, sump pump, etc, but not my PVR. As was mentioned, it could be a failing hard drive, or just a noisy one. You can go into Diagnostics and check the DVR HDD INFORMATION page to see if it shows any bad blocks.
Not sure on the troubleshooting option (under settings) would do much.
Better to go into the FULL box diagnostics.. There is a hard drive option in there i beleive, which may say if there is failures, etc.
Unless its changed.. i am assuming it still works on the Navigatr..
Hold down exit till you see one of the lights on the remote blink (setup i beleive?) then press the down arrow twice, then 2.
With the 8300 there are 39 pages of diagnostic screens. I don't know how many the Nextboxes have. You just page through them until you see one that refers to the hard drive and see if there are any bad blocks. Most of the screens mean nothing to me.
Nextbox 3.0 makes clicking noise.
Just went to swap out my Rogers Nextbox 3.0 PVR and found out I own it.Any one know if there's a fix for the clicking noise or do I have to take it some where to repair it.
