    I have got quiet used to the noise now after 18 months and I think I would miss it if it was no longer there. It is like the platters moving across the drive followed by a small 'bump' noise, then the whole process starts again.

    Probably does take around 8 seconds. Why don't you record it on your phone Minstrel then upload it, (if this is possible) and we could listen to see if it's the same noise.

    MontysEvilTwin - 5 hours ago  » I was wondering if anyone had opened up a HDR-2000T: there must be some around that are no longer covered by warranties. I was wondering if it has a 3.5 or 2.5 inch disk, and the make and model of the drive.

    I had one apart last week. It had a 3.5" Seagate Pipeline 1TB.

    There is a fan mounted on the HDD caddy, connected to the mainboard. It was largely dust-free, so doesn't seem to have run very often, if at all.

    I think it was pointed out to you some time ago, iPlayer does not work at all well on the 2000T and hasn't done for quite a long time.

    I have a similar problem with our Panasonic TV too. Sometimes iPlayer works but quite often it throws you out. BBC has said it's a Panasonic issue i.e. not updating their software and Panasonic claims it's the BBC who are at fault.

    I suspect this blame game is the reason iPlayer doesn't work on the 2000T as well.

    I doubt it's ever going to be resolved. However, there really are a ton of options for watching on demand content these days.

    No BBC iplayer HD programme is played in anything better than 720 on ANY device. The BBC and MY5 HD programmes are NOT streamed ANYWHERE in 1080. However if you buy a new Now TV 4K box (£24.99) special Black Friday week deal at Currys or Argus) you can watch the trial of Dynasties in 4k on the iplayer. It looks fab.

    Or a Firestick 4k for £35

    Why oh why oh why dios this machine still crash about 50% of the time I go into tv portal, flipping the machine off, sometimes not rebooting and freezing with only power off and on again to resolve it ?

    It’s an absolute disaster of a machine to not work simlply as it should. I am fed up to the back teeth of this problem time and time again when wanting to view iplayer. Never an update to resolve this bloody annoying flaw.

    HUMAX - ADDRESS THIS ISSUE!!!
