OK got it open removed drive have run WD diagnostics on it it passes

Will have to setup a Linux boot for my PC to go further

Meanwhile is a 160GB drive large enough to stick in as a box test?

A small drive will certainly work as a test. Just leaves less space for recordings.

I'll go digging in the cupboard tomorrow. See what parts are in there. As you can see, there are only two boards inside. If anything is playing up I assume it would be the main board. The tuner board would show up problems in a different way.
