I wasn't aware you tried a different dish, too. Brings me back to the box or cabling. Another thought, what software version do you have? My HR24-500 is running 0xb08 and I haven't had the issues you have had.
If you Bother to read the signature you would see that I have 3 HR24's, 2 of which are -500s.Since you seem to be determined to defend your misguided advice, you should really pay attention. I also have an HR24-500, so it IS isolated to that exact model. I think you should just drop this. I know you were trying to help, but not having an HR24 of any variation, you should have looked away. If you go to the original post, the man who started it is very knowledgeable and was mainly asking for others to confirm or deny this exact behavior, which you could not. If you reply, I will list the multitude of reasons why it could not possibly be the hard drive.
HAVING SAID THAT, THE PROBLEM IS GONE THIS MORNING. THE OTHERS WHO HAVE IT SHOULD BE ABLE TO CONFIRM THIS.
THEY OBVIOUSLY FIXED IT.
or maybe all or our hard drives miraculously fixed themselves overnight.
Exactly what experience do you have?
Also true. The answer to that would likely require a deep journey inside the machines, comparing chips, manufacturer of chips, firmware in the chips, etc. Such an exercise is beyond my expertise to be sure, so I'm just glad that it appears to be moot at this time.True, although it doesn't explain why not all units were affected.
