I have a HR20-100. Today I started watching Talledega Nights SD VOD with my kids. After about 30 minutes of the movie, the video jumps ahead a bit (the next scene seems to start in the middle of the action) and the sound is gone. I fast forwarded through the movie and there's no audio for the rest. If I rewind to before where the problem starts, everything is fine there. The audio stops in the same spot every time.

Twice I deleted the program and downloaded it again, but all three of them had the same problem in the same place. This seems to point to a problem with the copy at the head end that is being distributed. Either that or my HR20 is tripping over the MP4 stream in that spot.

Most of the VOD programs I've downloaded are fine but I've seen the same kind of problem with a few. Today I was determined to see if anyone had any comments here. I wasn't able to find a previous discussion that addressed this problem, so I started one.

Think it was a bad file.
I grabbed "something" this week and had a dropout that shouldn't have been there.
