Hi All,

I have been using the HD PVR Tatasky box for more than 2yrs now and off late, while watching some recorded programs only, the STB freezes suddenly and after about 5 mins reboots and switches to default mode and works fine.

This never happens while watching live content..

I guess, the inbuilt HDD may be failing :mad: mostly due to with constant use and frequent switch on / offs..

Any idea if the HDD can be replaced either with TSKy support or preferably DIY route?
I have multiple hdds (2.5", 3.5") lying around which can be used, hopefully.
Also what are the options and costs for replacing the HDD?

Any inputs are greatly appreciated..

TIA

All the DTH PVR/DVR have encryption on the internal HDD. (to protect its content for piracy and for changing or replacing internal hardware/software)
I am not sure about Tata Sky; however I had successfully upgraded my Airtel HD-DVR internal HDD from 320 GB to 2 TB, just for the purpose of increasing the HDD space.
It was really a great initiative taken by the user 'thadiyan' of a DTH forum.

You can try similar method with your Tata Sky DVR.
If you are willing to try and take the risk, here is the link:
