Special 160 Gb AV hard drive
for Dreambox 600.
Ideal for the Dreambox 600. Specially selected cool running mobile (2.5) AV model.
Notes, This are not a computer drive and cannot be bought from computer stores or
on-line computer suppliers. It is an AV drive developed for digital AV recording
applications. These drives are normally only supplied to the big manufacturers of
DVD writers, digital VCRs, satellite receiver PVRs, security digital time shift recorders etc.
These drives have been specially designed for AV use offering cool running high video
recording performance and as such tend to be a little more expensive than computer
"data recording" hard drives. The problem with normal computer (data) drives is that
they can pixillate or produce freezing while playback, or fail completely
resulting in valuable recordings are lost! or produce too much heat.
These excellent AV drives are inside all of our PVR Dreambox 600 that we sell and as
such are thoroughly tried and tested and sold in large numbers without any problems at all.
Yes it is easy to fit a hard drive yourself later on if you buy the hard drive ready 600,
just unplug from the mains supply, take the lid off, fit with 4 screws and connect the lead,
exactly the same process as fitting a hard drive in a computer but please fit only at a
static-safe work station as all hard drives contain static sensitive components and
can be damaged if anti-static precautions are not taken. Hard drives also needs formatting
and this is done in the receivers menu system once fitted. Better still, you can buy the
Dreambox 600 with the hard drive fitted above
If you do buy the drive for fitting later, remember these drives offer the best AV performance.
Using any old drive "lying around" is not a good idea!
