Okay, so I've been nursing my VIP2250 for a while now, Its been freezing, and locking up during playback of a recorded program, with a chirping sound from the HD.. Reboot, and all is well for like a week.
Well, its been happening more and more often, finally this morning I rebooted the VIP2250, after it died while playing a recorded Moonshiners, and I heard the infamous hardrive "click of death".. The system booted to a black screen with a red X in the middle.
So, I pulled the power, let it sit for a min, then fired it back up, and all seems to be well for now.
So.. Heres my question:
The Hard Drive; Is this equipment owned, or leased by me, the customer? If its leased, how would I go abouts getting a replacement / repair, and if its owned, is it possibe to replace the hard drive? I'd assume I'd have to image a new HD with some kind of goofy FS format, or otherwise "Bless" it to be recognized by the DVR..
FWIW, we've had this VIP2550 for a few years, and its worked beautifully, only the last couple months has it started to go downhill..
Any help is most appreciated.. Thank You!! --
