Advertisements I guarantee it's not the hard drive dying. My HR10 was working perfect until 6.3a, now it's more unstable than a Dish DVR! My drive is a 3 month old Seagate that never had an issue with the old software. It looks like Directv was wrong about two things in my case anyway. 1., 6.3a is actually MUCH slower than 3.1, due to all the reboots. 2., it wasn't a free upgrade as now I'm going to have to buy a $20 Instantcake cd to fix their buggy software. This sucks, I love the speed and folders but having an unusable DVR kind of overshadows those strong points. I can't believe how bad it is though, not being able to setup a SP is ridiculous.
