Think P Smith is onto your problem. The last time my DVR did what you describe (locked up just after going into self-test), it was the hard drive. Replacing the HD (owned receiver) brought it back to like-new (literally - without any of my cherished recordings). External HD would not work when this happened either so connecting one probably wouldn't make a difference.
