Is the temp reported coming from the HDD, or another source? just asking because Im using an EHD.
The temp is what the HR34 is reporting, I don't have an external drive plugged in.
Thats not what I meant, it was a general question about all of them. When the temp number is reported, is it from the HDD (internal or external) or something else.
That I do not know. PSmith is the kind of guy that might know that one.
On my HR21 I have an external hard drive on it and for the temp it says "N/A, External hard drive in use" so my guess is it is getting temp from the internal drive.
Weird, on the HR34 I am using an external, and it reads a temp.
I wonder if they made that change in the newer model receivers? We'll see if one of the pro's on here can answer that.
New FW can read from int or ext drive - check Diagnostics (during boot press Select on front panel).
I checked when I got home as soon as I turned everything on, 140. Of course I know the DVR itself is doing a lot in standby, buffering etc, but everything else was essentially off, including the AVR on the lower shelf.
Is it really that hot, or do you perhaps just have a bad thermistor sensor?
If you have professional thermometer, you could push a thermocouple thru vents inside ... I'm too far to lend my dual channel Fluke.
It could be I guess. I need to feel it again, I forgot to do that, and had my fan on. It needs replaced regardless at least so that the overheating message doesn't keep coming up. But an interesting thought.
Best I have is a meat thermometer unfortunately and don't know of anyone that I can borrow one from.
Interesting idea ... sort of right approach - get internal part's temp ... but it would be invasive method If you have canned air, use it with a straw inside of the DVR...
Mine reported 109 in a 70 ish room. Sitting in a open air shelf... Now its in a cabinet... time will tell once I put the door on what it will go up to. thinking of installing some ports in the back to vent.
Did you get your replacement yet?
Not yet, and I'm still waiting on a recovery kit for my HR22. I'm hoping I get something tomorrow.
I hope you get it tomorrow then. I really think the HR34 should have a 24 hour turnaround time for replacements. It will be interesting to see if there's a shift if/when RVU clients become the norm on install. A downed HR34 would mean no usable Tv in this case.
Very true, and if I dont get it by Friday, that means Tuesday.
Box arrived today, I've confirmed it's a 34. Will be interesting to see what the temp is when I set it up tonight.
I really wish there was a way to back up and restore stuff like series links, guide settings etc.
