PACE HD upgraded with 1TB Seagate Pipeline

Postby Wag » Thu Jun 17, 2010 5:17 pm


I have upgraded my PACE HD box with a 1tb Seagate pipeline ST31000322CS. I chose this drive because it was the closest thing that I could find to the original which was also a Seagate pipeline 320GbST 3320310CS.

The installation and copy + has gone well and at first all seemed well. All content has copied across and everything seemed to work well.

I have now come across a problem however, and reading other posts, I think it may be due to spinup time.

The problem I get is when the box is turned on after being in standby for some time (over night for example), the EPG is blank with the message "please wait". Live TV is fine, but the EPG and Planner are inaccessible / empty. If I turn off and on at the wall, everything comes back.

The old drive had a spinup time of <6 seconds, the new one <12 seconds.

Can anyone confirm whether this is likely to be the problem? If so is there anything that can be done to get round it other than leaving the box powered up all the time?
