I have a hr22 in my daughters bedroom and I noticed today when I walked in her room that her receiver is making noise. Is this the harddrive doing this and does it mean that it is going bad. If anyone else out there has had problems of this nature how long before it really goes !!!Thanks Dobok

There are only two moving parts in the DVR .... hard drive and cooling fan.  Sometimes putting small foam rubber pads under the DVR's feet can help isolate vibration-induced noise. Otherwise, if it's truly annoying, you'll need to replace the DVR. 


HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

Dump the 22 and get a 24 and you'll have no sound issues.

That would be a good idea if there was an "easy" way to get it done. We know that DirecTV does not guarantees receiver model numbers

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

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

I can't imagine a more misleading or less helpful statement. That implies that it is particular models that have noise issues, when as has been pointed out, all models have the two things that can get noisy, which are the HDD and the cooling fan, and there is no correlation between either of those and model numbers, at least certainly not strict correlation.

 

I have seen this complaint regarding probably every model available, including the HR20 and the HR21, of which I have had 8 different versions of with absolutely never a noise problem.

 

The only conclusion to be drawn is that if a model develops noise, that it is likely that the HDD or the fan is on borrowed time, and there really is only one way to solve that problem, short of adding an external drive (which will neither solve the noise problem nor determine the cause).

 

Call it in, get it replaced. Try to watch what you can and not record if possible; move what you can to a 16x9 DVDR if you like. Move on.


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

Just what I said.  It just took you longer to get to the point.

Just out of curiosity, what made you infer that I meant that?
