Advertisements The other day, I got a green screen on one of my 2 SD-DVR40s. The drive is dead. The other unit came with an 80 and a 160 GB drive, both of which ran incredibly quiet. As I didn't have any other drives handy that were large enough, and I couldn't get a replacement drive, I used InstantCake on each of the drives and migrated the 160 gb drive in place of the dead drive. Since then, the drives have been thrashing constantly. Now, I understand that they're constantly recording the live signal that's understandable, but they weren't nearly as loud about it before the "upgrade" job. It's kind of annoying trying to get to sleep at night with the drive thrashing. FWIW, both units are doing it, although the 160GB unit is in the family room and its noise is covered up by the ceiling fan, dogs, and ambient noise level. its the one in the bedroom that's getting obnoxious. Also, neither of these units is at the moment connected to dual satellite feeds (Haven't got the cables terminated yet.) Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, was there a solution for the problem?
