I've had my 44 for a couple of weeks now and, for the most part, really enjoy it. But, from the start, I've had VOD download problems. To begin, I would occasionally get an error message trying to record something from VOD telling me that the connection had been interrupted and it would try again later. After a short while I decided this wasn't a big deal since it always managed, eventually, to download the content and I didn't care that much that it took quite a while (I've got a pretty slow DSL so slow downloads are pretty much the norm here). But several downloads have had glitches where the recording stops and you have to rewind a bit and then fast forward through the glitch to resume playing (missing a bit of the recording) - a problem I never had downloading VOD content to my HR24. And tonight an episode of Showtime's "Six Feet Under" simply stopped at 41 minutes into it, giving me the option to save or delete. I tried several things to get past that 41 minute mark - rewinding a bit when I resumed it and then fast forwarding, starting the recording again from the beginning and fast forwarding. All of them ended at 41 minutes with the option of save or delete. So I downloaded it from my HR24 which gives me the option of a faster download at 720p (the 44 doesn't give me this option). This recording played perfectly. So, my question is: do VOD downloads to the HR44 tend to be buggy in this way? I probably should try downloading the show to my 24 at the higher quality speed to see if it's an issue with the higher quality download vs. the faster download. But, before trying that, I just wanted to see if this issue seemed familiar to any of you with 44s out there.
