Heres whas happeining.

 

-I had pvr with expander working fine, then something happened (?) and had to reformat expander. Lost all my programming so I unplugged the expander for a while to fill up the internal HD.

 

-About 6 months pass, PVR is starting to fill up. Followed online instructions to activate the Expander again.

 

-Since activating the expander a couple of weeks ago, the PVR freezes up every few days. No remote buttons or console buttons work, its stuck on the last channel it was on, only TV functions work, and its showing the incorrect time. Have to unplug, wait 15 sec then plug back in. Then everything works but loses guide until it repopulates.

 

This seems to happen more if I leave the PVR on to record a program rather than it coming on by itself then turning itself off.

 

We're going away for a couple of weeks and I am not sure if it freezes up weather I will record my pre-set shows or not.

 

What do I need to do to get this working without freezing up?
