The past two mornings when I cut on my HWS I got the screen message "Hard Drive Failure. Unplug receiver for 10 seconds" I did this both times and all recorded programs were still there. Is my receiver going bad or is there another problem?

Many hard drives have a feature called SMART that warns of impending hard drive failure. This offers you the opportunity to backup what you want to keep.

IOW, better move stuff off that DVR onto an EHD quick, fast, and in a hurry!
