Re: [DVR] My Father's Day Gift From Mediacom: DVR Won't Reset
said by basenji:Tech was out at the house today. Confirmed the channel/time display was burned out, and your right about the HDD size, as it was 160GB. Tech provided me with a Pace TDC787X w/250GB HDD, and with a working display. 250GB is plenty for us as we really don't use it for storage, but more for time shifting. Could not understand why the Iowa City office would pass & reissue a DVR with a display that doesn't work.
Power the box off and hit menu and adjust the front panel brightness. The HD in that model is a 160G not 120.
To put in another way, it was trading in a $30,000 car even up for a $15,000 car, and having to still make the same monthly payment.
