    One box with identical settings to another does not return to standby

    By 'timer' I assume you refer to the Power ON/OFF timers? If so yes, see post #3 I will remove them too later.

    One box with identical settings to another does not return to standby

    This morning the red-ring is blue and the drive is spinning. Yes, I am away for 3 plus weeks. I will leave the behaving box on standby as I normally do, set to record as and when programmed. The problem box, I will uninstall the OTA and leave it switched off with the main switch. There is no...

    One box with identical settings to another does not return to standby

    To be honest, I had forgotten about the timers until they were mentioned. It is so long ago I cannot even remember the scenario in which they were used. Both boxes were set up years ago and apart from updating the CFW, not touched. Of course today the timers are irrelevant as you point out. As...

    One box with identical settings to another does not return to standby

    Well, this always 'on' when I get up in the morning having turned it off via the remote is a real pain because of the lecky it wastes and the wear and tear on the drive. It certainly had been doing this for many weeks and I just turned the machine on and off again with the remote without...

    One box with identical settings to another does not return to standby

    I have done. I admit it was only one night it did not occur but if it happens tomorrow then it is probably conclusive.

    I uninstalled disable-ota yesterday and the problem did not occur. disable-ota is installed on another box and it does not have a problem. Any idea what is happening or how I could track down the problem?

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    The other box is running at 46/7 so I will try 50% too on both boxes. Probably fluff.

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    Ok thank you, I will look at the other problems later. I will also clean out both boxes. btw I use that type of fan, probably an identical one as a cooler for a maxed out pi processor with a home made monster heatsink.

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    The humax box is on an open shelf in a large unit with some 120 mm space between its top and the next shelf above upon which there is another humax which to date never has problems and has the same space above it. The room temperature is approximately 22C maximum during the day. With 'Fan' not...

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    Thank you @Ezra Pound but the salient point there are the words 'sufficiently high'. How would someone like me, a relative novice know at what level to set it at? I tried 100% but have no idea whether that had any effect or not because it said off! I think I prefer to replace the drive and...

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    I wondered about that because sysmon showed the fan as 'red' a couple of times and now I have installed 'fan' it shows as fan off. This made me think I should physically check if the fan needs de-fluffing and/or is defunct. I will uninstall 'fan'. At £38 I am seriously considering buy two new...

    Hard Drive problems - failed recordings

    The fan package is installed and set at 100% minimum and has been rebooted several times. Sysmon show the fan is off at the moment. When I return next month I will dismantle the unit and see just what is happening. In the meantime I will turn the unit off permanently
