[QUOTE=Rus;1291374]I, personally, would like to know why one would want to replace a working HD. Is it to replace the HD with a SSD?

[/QUO

I think DIRECT TV SUCKS and would NEVER use their products But... I would like to know how to open a box so I can take the hard drive out and use it in a computer. I will continue to sift through time wasters asking questions on other sites. Thanks for wasting my time as well as who knows how many other peoples.

Why so many questions? Why does it even matter why? Just answer the question if you know (or provide a link) and STFU if you DONT.

I know this is an old thread but I have the same problem and I hope someone here can help. DirecTV updated my HR34-700 receiver to a newer model. Since the HR34 was obsolete they didn't want it returned but told me to recycle it. Before doing that I would like to salvage the hard disk but can't figure out how to properly remove the cover. Since I don't have to worry about damaging anything I'll use the brute force method if I have to but I'd prefer doing it the correct way if possible. Can anyone help?

The Hard Drive can be used for any extra storage - Open the receiver any way you can as you can not resell it REASON- It was leased never owned - so hack it open and then recycle whats left.

Being a normal person, I had to look up what "STFU" means. Don't think this jerk is going to get any help here or anywhere else for that matter. Probably shouldn't take it to his level, but what the heck, "GTFU" off this board.

Wow, all these smart alec comments and no real answers! Anyway, I was just told by D***TV to recycle rather than return this piece of junk HR34-700 (died of storage failure after a lingering illness). Thought I do a little post mortem tinkering and was looking for an elegant way to open up this deceased patient, but all I see recommended here is the primitive Pete approach. If you don't know, just say so... Don't deride or ridicule somebody simply for asking how.

There are four small tabs, one on each corner on the sides.... Use a small screwdriver in the round access holes on the bottom edge just beyond the feet to push in (away from the outer edge) while gently pulling the cover away from the chassis. This should allow the plastic cover to lift up some, especially at the back. There's one more, different type of tab near the right middle of the front panel with another round access hole on the bottom. Again, pressing that tab in with a small screwdriver should completely release the top cover. There are two spots for screw retention on the back, but there were none installed on this one.
