Anyone have this issue? the recording goes straight from 20 minutes to 1:32 in.
I get this every once in a great while. I have found that it will occur if the sat signal disappears or something, then reappears again, like in a heavy rainstorm (California storms), which pass after a few minutes. I sometimes also get a hole for what i believe to be a drive burp in that, for some reason, the show is recorded correctly, but the drive got stupid as a certain point, causing it to skip a whole section (sector, maybe?) and go on to the next. I have found on both occasions if I skip to the end of the show, and then rewind back, I can find the skip point and resume sometimes with only a few seconds lost. Wierd, but it has worked. You do have to be careful, because if you do go back further than where the skip happens, then when you play again, you will skip again and have to start all over again. Tedious I know, but mine works this way. Wierd too. I still think it is something with the drive at the time of recording that causes the sector, maybe, to not get the right info so the system knows the order that sector should be in for proper playback. And, like most systems, it will just skip and move on to the next good section and resume.
