    I've noticed that many of my recordings on the HR21 are starting a few seconds late, maybe 10-20 seconds. Not much, but enough to, on occasion, cut out a little bit of dialogue at the beginning of the show. Is this happening to anyone else? Is this a time issue with the HR21 or are some stations starting their shows a little early (perhaps to fit in more ads?). Can I set the recording a minute or two early without causing conflicts if I have two shows recording prior to this one?

    Thanks.

    It is a known issue, and AFAIK, D* is working on correcting it.

    Yes, you can work around this by padding the front end by a couple of minutes. Will only be a problem if there are conflicting shows before it that you are recording. That's why it helps to have 2 DVRs. :D

    This is one of the bugs carried over from the HR20.

    I think that you have all of the HR20 bugs except for the OTA bugs. Here are the HR20 bugs as documented in Chris Bakers thread:

    Oh really?

    It's been this way forever on the HR20-700 and there's been diddly squat done about it much less an acknowledgement that the problem even exists at all.

    Glad your HR21's are being worked on at least. Maybe that'll lead to the HR20 being fixed but I ain't holding my breath.:nono:

    Forgive me for asking a silly question, but how are "bugs" fixed? If an update/fix, does it happen through the sat itself or do I have to do something to the reciever. I really like my HR-21, it's the first recorder I have ever had. I'm just wondering how they get the "bugs" out.

    Thank you!

    gw,

    They are automatically downloaded over the satellite. You don't have to do anything to receive them.

    I've always padded 2 minutes before a program and 2 minutes after a program ever since I've had DVRs.

    I even did it when I started recording with a VCR back in the late 80's.

    I thought I read somewhere in this forum that this problem was being addressed. I haven't seen it in any HR20 CE though....

    I had Tivos for years and never padded anything and never had a problem. Now with my two HR20s, if I don't pad on the front end I miss the first 15 seconds or so of most shows, and since we record a lot, padding a minute early is not usually a viable option.
