A Successful Brain Transplant

Finally got round to replacing the hard disk in my PVR. I had been meaning to do it for some time. Finally decided to get the same disk that was in there before, just a more recently manufactured one. It is subtly different to the original and hopefully it will last longer and work better.

Everything seems to be working properly, but I haven't recorded anything yet. I'm just glad to have a proper freeview box again, watching analogue TV was so awful.

The Fusion FVRT100 generates a lot of heat and I'm thinking of uprating the cooling (I'm a bit concerned about increasing the load on the puny power supply), but there isn't much room in the case for modification and I don't want it to be too noisy. The current fan is tiny but relatively noisy and I'm not sure that it is really helping to cool the unit.
