@#$%&*! PS3 killed my HD-DVR!!!

Post by Witchkin » Fri Jun 15, 2007 04:26

So here's the deal, my HD DVR, which is a Dual Tuner (meaning it can watch one channel and record from another) died today. :( It would flash an error message, power down, come back on repeat...the same cycle.

It was FRAGGED! I called Dish Network technical support and we went through all the usual steps, power it down by unplugging it, etc... it wouldn't even respond to the remote or manually pressing the power button. The tech support lady informs me that she will have to ship me a new one.....

She hen asks me how I have it plugged in.

W "Powertap, with a few other things....TV....."

TS "Do you have any heat coming from your TV?"

W "No, I have an LCD HDTV, it doen't suck up nearly as much current as a plasma."

TS "Ah, ok...what else is hooked up with it?"

W "Well...my brother's Playstation--"

TS "The Playstation 3?"

W"Uhh..yeah..is that bad?"

TS "The Playstation 3 in particular pulls a lot of current through a powertap and what tends to happen is the HDDVR doesn't get enough juice to run everything poperly...causes the hard drive to completely crash over time."

W Staring in shock at my brother's playstation...I then start to move in slow motion and shake my fist in the air angrily "DAMN YOU SOOOONNNNYYYYY" Ok, I made that last part up.

My Xbox 360 on the other hand never caused any problems with other equipment. I asked her about the 360 and she said "You almost never hear about a problem caused by the new Xbox, unless the power tap or surge protector is really old."


pwnt.... Score one more for 360
~~Basically....I get people drunk and take their money...for a living. :)~~~

THATS IT! Its official it should just be typed down in Wikipedia as I type it...like simultaneously. The Playstation 3 is utter failure. I'm sorry Urra, Von...PF in it's entirety. Sony fucked up big time. Please just lock this forum section and sink it to the sea.

I Hate the PS3.

Why the hell do you think otherwise?

Why would I get my sources from an eskimo with hook for hands? I meant to say I'm sorry I ever doubted your crude judgement. You guys were all right about the PS3.

You blame the PS3 for a shitty ass HD-DVR and power strip? Lame.

Well, the PS3 does get pretty hot. If my PS3 was near it, and my HD-DVR broke, I would blame it on that 10 pound behemoth.
