Anybody having any problems with the daily update if there's a connected EHD?
What FW version, bootstrap version ?
Glad to hear no one is having problems.
I actually don't leave my EHD connected... I always disconnect it from the receiver when not watching something on it or archiving to/from it.
I leave EHDs connected to both my 722 and 612 and have never had a problem related to the EHD. Since I don't have a "k" this may not give you the assurance you're looking for. And I concede that I probably should disconnect them.
Is it every night or varied i.e; sometimes will sometimes won't? In any case I'll hook mine back up for a few days.
Nope, never had a problem since started using an EHD over a year ago.
Never had an issue with the 722 but the "k" doesn't seem to think much of the EHD when performing daily update. I do not leave the EHD connected overnight any more. I had refurb "k"'s that acted the same way as the new one. Just wondering if it's a "k" thing or not. In my house it appears it is.
Do you guys power down the EHD, unplug the USB cable or both? I'm going to be adding an EHD to my 722k real soon. The unwatched movies are stacking up.
I pull the power plug on the EHD. Just "powering down" only lasts until the nightly reboot.
Unplug the USB cable. Actually, I have a four port USB hub that I just switch off the EHD I was using.
That's how I have mine set up.
USBs are always connected via a hub and I just power on the EHD I want to use.
I've got a power strip with individual switches for each EHD.
You're cutting power to the EHD rather than disconnecting the USB connection?
Correct, 4 EHDs connected via 4 port USB hub to 722 always.
Doing the same with my 622.
As long as I don't power up more than one EHD at a time, it works great.
and using USB switch would eliminate monkey play with the power
Then you have monkey play with a USB switch and all your EHDs are powered up 24/7.
I don't think they are powered up once the USB connection is interrupted, at least they're not spinning and there are no lights.
I've had an EHD connected to my 722k for over a year now. The EHD stays powered 24/7 and I've never had an issue during updates - or at anytime for that matter.
I have noticed that after 20 or 30 minutes the update will continue if there's an EHD connected. Have you witnessed what happens when the daily update occurs and an EHD connected?
On weekends, If I'm awake at the time of the updates (and lately I've been awake) I've not noticed anything unusual.
During the week I'm at work when the updates run.
I have mine set to run at 8 AM.
