Many posts lack of info about temperature - rich584, could you post the gold sequence to posters here ?

As to a sensor, usually such boxes has separate [LM75] small chip (8 legs) on mainboard (BTW, you , as an owner and did replace internal HDD, should take a look and find where is the chip located). ;)

I really think it is on the HDD itself. When I was running a 20-700 only on an external HDD with the internal HDD, I got zero degree readings. I will look for that chip.

As to the temps for the HRs, the 20-700s will run at about 123-126 degrees (if you put an internal EADS HDD in one you will see 118 degrees, stick an EVDS drive in one and you hit 123-126 again, go figure).

The 21 series runs cooler, usually around 110 degrees and the 24s usually run about the same.

Oh, misunderstood your post. You just hold the Info button down for a couple seconds and should be taken to the System Info and Test page. You should see the Run System Test button highlighted. Scroll down to the More System Info button and hit Select. This will bring the temp up in the results.

The fan in my HR24 stopped working.  I found a replacement fan. In China.

 

Aliexpress.com

 

JMC 5015-12 12V 0.08A 5015 5CM CPU chassis cooling fan P / N: 05001A003

 

Just copy and paste this info in you search browser and it should pull up a number of hits, just look for the Aliexpress.com link.

 

It's $15.99 with free shipping.  Since it is coming from China, it will take about 4 weeks to arrive.

 

Since the fan wasn't working, the unit shut itself off due to high temps.  I simply removed the top cover which allow the unit to remain operational and disapate the heat without the restriction of the enclosed case.  Once the fan arrives, and if it does fit and work.  I will pop the top cover back in place.

My replacement HR24-100 makes noise that wakes me up at night. Unit is approx 15 feet from the bed. I never noticed the "whir" noise before with the other, same model, unit.

 

When I listen closely it sounds like the hard drive spinning and not the fan. Perhaps I am mistaken. Only options I can see are return and pay $20.00 and cross my fingers replacement is quieter or move unit into my 2nd bedroom and bring a receiver only into the MBR. Not a great compromise.

The HR24-100 that is in my bedroom is 5 feet from my head and I can not hear it running. Can't hear the one in the den when I am close to it either.

The fan is the most likely thing you are hearing. Most hard drives are dead before making any noise.

I've had a completely different experience with the 24-100s.  Out of the four that I have only one is quiet.  The rest I've put in noisy rooms or rooms that don't get used for sleeping.  They all work fine, but, let's face it, they're cheap and I'm not surprised at the noise mine make.  I don't have that problem with any of my other HRs, just the 24-100s.  Even my old 20-700 is quiet.

Obviously something is wrong with those DVRs.  My HR24 is whisper quite.

The the troublemakers.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Sadly, nothing will be done.  You might try replacements.

A couple of choices.

1. Change it out to an HD ( non DVR ) receiver.

2. Call them and tell them it will not power on and ask for a replacement. They usually do not replace one because it is noisy.

 

I have 2 or the HR24-100s and they are very quiet.

 

If you had that much noise from the hard drive it would be dead. This is most likely the bearings in the fan. At some point they will fail totally and the units will start to overheat.

I had a noisy fan on a HR24-200 which comes and goes, sounded like a grinder,  Replaced it with a HR24-500 and only fan noise on that one is a reboot which last a second.

I have a HR24-200 and it's extremely quiet, and like acostapimps, I only hear the fan running briefly when it's rebooting...
