ViP612 Frame Jumping
Posted 26 September 2008 - 01:04 PM
I only watch recorded programming. And I am mostly watching while other shows are recording.
I'm hoping its not hardware, but it could be hardware or software. I'm beginning to wonder if the 612 either lacks sufficient cache size or simply uses slower memory or a slower processor. I've noticed that the 612 takes longer than the 722 to move shows to and from my EHD. Also, the 612 "feels" different from my 722 in terms of remote response lag.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Also, is there any web info on the hardware used in the ViP612?

OTOH, I don't keep a lot of events stored on the 612, so something like that may account for faster/slower response times

I can't always back up and get all the missing frames, such as last night on Stargate Atlantis. All I missed was some banter, but its frustrating.
I too have the same issue with my 612 but notice it is more prominent on OTA. I'm sure it's just me but it only seems to happen just as the punchline to a joke is uttered. I know i can back it up to "fix" the problem but it kinda kills the joke.

I've got the same issue.
Just purchased a 612 and I'm having this same issue. Seems to only occur on playback of recorded shows.
Is this still happening to other 612's. I have a 622 that has never exhibited this problem.
