Advertisements So now that the S3, expanded to 750gb prior to purchase, that I got from the TiVo Community Store is coming up on it's 2nd birthday (purchased in 12/06), I guess I shouldn't be too surprised that I'm having hard drive problems (exacerbated by 9.4 from what I've read here). Though my hacked S1 has worked reliably for more than twice as long. A couple months back I found that the S3 had rebooted on it's own and couldn't get past the initial power on screen, requiring me to do a hard-reset (pull the plug, wait 15 sec, and plug it back in). Over time this started happening more and more frequently to the point where it's now occurring multiple times each day, though I'm sometimes able to record for hours without incident. Through trial and error I've found that using the Kickstart (KS) 57 procedure seems to extend the length of time between reboots. When I ran KS 54 the tests failed with an error message of "Fail 4". Does anyone know what sort of problem "Fail 4" signifies? The entire set of tests finished quicker than I was lead to expect (in less than 10 minutes). I was also concerned that KS 54 only tested the 'primary' drive since I thought that my 750gb S3 was expanded by adding a 500gb drive to the OEM 250gb. Perhaps I was wrong and there is only a single 750gb drive? I've ordered a new 1TB drive and intend to crack the case, pull the current drive(s), and use WinMFS to try and transfer my settings and recordings to the new drive. Can I expect the problem with the current drive(s) to impact my ability to transfer my recordings? While I anxiously await the mailman, does anyone know of anything I can do, other than continuing to run KS 57, to help my poor ailing S3 limp along?
