About once a week now, I'll power up the TV to find a frozen pixelated image...the record light on...and the R10 completely unresponsive to any remote, or set-top button press.
Pulling the plug, waiting a tad, and powering back up resolves the issue for a few days...maybe a week or two, if I'm lucky.
I'm assuming the hard drive is failing. Y'all agree/disagree?
I have the protection plan...but just how often must the R10 fail before D* will swap it? (I assume the R10 is "disposable"?)
