The disk on a 5040 seems to have given up the ghost. I can return it to
RTV, but know that is can be replaced by me. However, I want to do it
with the least pain.

I don't want to have to create the appropriate image on the new disk. I
know there are people who sell appropriate upgrade disks which can just
be installed. Can anyone direct me to a reputable such person.

I am sure that I can intall the disk, I just don't want to have to
involve my computer in the affair.

Thanks.

Do you have a geeky friend who always seems to have the cover off his
computer?

Really, truly, and honestly, this is about a 2 minute affair to prepare
a disk for use in RTV. A decent geeky kinda guy would do it for the
challenge alone--but he'd appreciate the beer and pizza you brought
along.

These guys are expensive:

but hey, they do the two minute thing for you AND warranty the drive.

A hard drive is $50. Beer and pizza, $30. Or those guys, $190.

I want to replace the HD on my PV-HS2000. Second time it has gone out.
Where can I get the instructions for formatting the hard drive?

thanks

Well that didn't work. I want to replace my hard drive in my HV2000. Where
can I get the configuration for the new hard drive. Any HD speed
requirements?

thanks

This may help you http://rtvpatch.sourceforge.net/

The earlier RPTV and SS units had a max of 137GB/137 hrs. 5400RPM HDs are
recommended. 7200s run hotter.

Good Luck!
