My 921 started "clicking"
Posted 17 October 2006 - 09:11 PM
Pretty quiet these days in here for those of us who still have a 921 DVR. My 921 has been working pretty well lately, but now I have the following issue.
Yesterday morning, I woke up and heard my 921 "clicking" when I came into my living room. FYI, I usually leave my DVR unit powered on overnight (I sometimes rewind an hour or so of IMUS on MSNBC when I leave the DVR on MSNBC overnight).
The unit had the picture freeze at the same time when I first turned on the TV monitor yesterday.
I did a power button hold-for-ten-seconds reboot and the clicking went away and things were fine. However, the clicking came back a few hours later and is still coming back every 2-3 hours. I have done both power button and power cord unplugs.
Earlier tonight, it was clicking and I just turned the power off the 921, but even with it off, the clicking would not stop (until I rebooted).
One more thing, sometimes it will click and will only temporarilly freeze up the screen on the channel I am viewing for a couple of seconds, but the live action will continue (although the pic has frozen on one image twice, including the first time I turned my TV on Monday morning and noticed the clicking).
Any idea what may be going on or what I should do? Is my unit about to crash? I have several things (me on TV news and on TV at a Cubs game) I would like to record to my DVD burner before my unit crashes or is turned in for a MPEG-4 upgraded reciever (I am planning to do that in the next 6 months anyway).
Sorry for the ramble...but I'm a Ramblin' Man.

Keep in mind - receiver or DVR are computers with satellite tuner or two.
