    Okay I waited three weeks and several attempts before posting. I cannot record Motorweek. I have tried 3 weks straight at several different time slots. Every time when I go to play it all it does is freezes the current frame of whatever was on screen. The time bar advances and moves along with cueing but screen never moves. Upon stopping or exiting al is fine and live tv resumes. Surely I am not the only person on here to watch the show. It is on my local PBS afiliate via antenna 20-1 in Indianapolis. I am using an August '06 HR20-700.

    There are lots of complaints about bad recordings when trying to capture local channels.

    I use a TiVo for OTA stuff for just that reason.

    MotorWeek also appears on Speed - 607. Don't know if it's the current season or not. You could try catching it there.

    Motorweek records fine here. Do other shows record properly on 20-1? This sounds like a reception issue. It's not shot in Hi Def, so if you have to get it off an SD feed you won't lose too much.

    reception is very strong on this station. I have not recorded anything else from 20-1 in a while so I will try that as well. I have never had this issue on the other OTA networks. I will look into further.

    I record MW every week up here in South Bend without issues.

    I have never had any problem recording it or any other OTA with either of my HR20's. Also PBS indicates that the program is HD, at least here in Texas. As I recall the episode shown on SPEED on Thursdays is the same episode shown here on PBS the previous Sunday.
