My Foxsat which has a 1TB WB10EURX drive and on custom firmware 4.1.3, will not boot, so disconnected HD drive and boots as normal. Removed drive to connect to laptop and DiskGenius reports warning so there are bad sectors. Not sure it's worth using repair software. I have a spare WD10EARS but not sure if this is suitable or what price a suitable drive will be, £30?
So is now the time to retire the Foxsat to just a viewer and get the latest Humax recorder which at least will have iplayer for now?
