    Hello all....

    I have been experiencing some problems with my Dishplayer which is, I believe a 4700. It is an older one with WebTV. I have been experiencing some problems with it of late and am not sure what to do.

    Symptoms are:

    1. Pink screen of death. While changing a channel or doing a channel recall the screen goes pink and the player becomes non-responsive both at the remote and the front panel. To resolve it I have to unplug the unit.

    2. I dont know if it is a result of unplugging the unit but any scheduled recordings do not go off as planned. Resulting I might add a very upset SO when she cant watch ER.

    There were at one time instructions running around about replacing the hard drives in the Dishplayer with larger ones. I cannot seem to find these anymore and if anyone has them or has insight on how to change out the drive please let me know.

    Thanks

    Colin
