I must say I’m at my wits end with the Quad I purchased about 15 days ago.
Connected over Ethernet -45dbm signals (5 green) , various internal and external drives.
Problem, try to record 4 shows at 8 or 10 Mbps and the system just reboots, and reboots, you end up with just a bunch of 1 minute fragments of the same show. Odd it runs for 1 minute or close before rebooting.
Record at the recommended 5 Mbps and the system doesn’t reboot, however sometimes one of the shows ends up split screen and flickering.
Being in the electronics field for 30 years or so I’ve cooled the thing way down, running off my $850 lab power supply at the moment. Nothing helps, I’ve tried Hitachi, Toshiba, Seagate and WD drives internal and external.
At this point I doubt I can send it back as I’ve opened up the hole in the bottom for a 40 x 40 x 10mm fan. I’ve since removed that as it didn’t help much. I now have forced air blowing on the entire thing keeping it cool.
I even tried a Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD, same exact issues.
Power, not an issue…tried two 2A 12V power adapters as well as now the lab power supply. It’s drawing ~1.17A currently or about 13 watts peak 11 watts idle.
Heat, no longer an issue. The thing is running around 80F
Hard drives, I’ve tried around 8 drives, nothing changes, no better or worse. Factory reset and setup each time.
Currently it appears to work if I keep it at 5Mbps or below.
Never mind, it just rebooted.
Any logical sound scientific advise would be appreciated.
