and also found this in the thread: Code 14 indicates trouble communicating with the hard disk drive while 15 indicates the drive is accessible but does not pass integrity tests. For 14, reboot the box and see if the problems continue. For 15 replace the box. Generally boxes showing a code 14 will soon begin showing code 15. These issues may also lead to a code 21 at bootup. Normally they all indicate the receiver should be replaced.
I can't find what the 767 stands for in the error code. Anyone had this code before?

I can't verify that. Some of the more experienced on here can.

This menu lets you reformat the HDD if that shows up as the problem. The reformat routine on your DVR actually tries to preserve the recordings and settings so you shouldn't lose anything.
If the HDD is indeed dying, I'd just replace it rather than going through the exercise in frustration involved in getting a replacement from DirecTV even though it may cost a few bucks more. You never know what reconditioned clunker DirecTV may send you!

Update: Well the hardrive finally bit the dust diagnostic test (short and long) once a week over the last 3 weeks showed nothing until the code came up.Bought a external drive today and everything back up working normally. Thanks everyone for your help!
Getting an external drive usually solves this problem.
