First, sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
I have one of the original slinbox units hooked up in my home theater running an HR10 model DirecTivo unit. It took a while, maybe 4-5 months, but the HR10 unit in the theater died... so bad that even replacing the hard drive and re-imaging doesn't work.
I have 3 HR10s and happened to have one I could move into the theater, so I did so about a month ago. That HR10 now has the very same problem.
It could be the room, but I don't see how. Nothing else electrical has ever been damaged. The only difference (besides location) is that these HR10s were hooked to the slingbox.
Crazy as it sounds, is it possible for the slingbox to do anything to damage a unit? I am guessing not. I'm guessing that its just bad timing or coincidence, but at the same time I'm not willing to plug in another HR10 in that room or put an HR20 in there either.
Just curious if anyone has had HR10s die so bad that even new hard drives with new images wouldn't fix them.
