Hi,

I have got another problem Sad
A have upgraded my toppy harddrive to a Maxtor Maxline III 300GB. A few weeks a go I noticed that my Toppy was access the harddrive a lot, making a lot of noise and on bbc channels the images became blocky constantly. I checked the harddrive with topfHD and all seemed fine until I looked at how fragmented the drive was, and it was appalling. So I defragged it and everything returned to normal.

The Taps I autostart: mystuff, remote extender, topfield display and description extender.
I run eit2mei every so often to bulk up the EPG.

In the last two days I have had a couple of freezes and the Toppy will not power down (single dot of doom syndrome), both times when eit2mei has been running. So I had a look at my harddrive again with topfhd/rw and again there were large sections of defraged material (now where near as much as last time, but too much considering it is a few weeks). What is strangeris that the parts of the fragmented files seem to be interleaved with other files and seem to be dotted all over the place.

I haven't got a clue what is going on,l but my candidates are:
1) Faulty harddrive (I will be miffed if it is, as I have had one faulty one already)
2) eit2mei
3) Timeshifting being on.
Or a combination of the above.

Has anyone got any ideas on how I can get to the root of this?

Thanks

So I have checked the drive on the PC using the manufacters tools and it seemed to be fine. Now running my Toppy without the time shifting to see if matters improve.
