The hard disk drive in my PVR ( talk talk tv recorder ) has knackered. Not wanting to miss a challenge I opened it up and checked what HDD was in it and ordered an identical one.
Now, I assume it is not just a matter of swapping it out, but, after some research it appears the o/s is in Linux and the new HDD has to be partitioned with Gpart.
Anyone done this before on a windows computer ? Don't want to risk fouling it up. The set top box model number is DN370T

or.... is it a simple matter of swapping it over ?
Did you have to buy your PVR. If not it's probably down to TalkTalk to replace the disc.
If it is your responsibility I'd try swapping it and then looking through the setup menu and reformatting it.

There is a 372 for £15 on Ebay to save the fuss
