I finally got to use my DishTV S7010PVR over saterlight, I used both firmware patches available on DishTV support page, everything works nicely.
I purchased a 2TB USB Powered Seagate to record on, however after 4-5 minutes of detecting it freezes the DishTV S7010PVR,
I have tried smaller USB Stick of 32GB instead and it works fine,
I have partitioned the HDD into 1TB size, two partitions one primary the other local fat32,
can any one point me in the right direction?
also can USB sticks suffer burn out from constant use? I record quite alot every day.
from dishtv [We always recommend that you use an external power source to power the HDD on a USB PVR. If your USB HDD does not have an external power source, we recommend you purchase an adaptor lead and power supply (plug pack) from a computer store.]
...so an usb powered hhd won't work. you need a hdd that has it own power supply.
