You know I'm seeing something similar in my setup. I've noticed that since we activated MRV on all 5 HD DVR's I'm seeing video glitches/freezes on recordings that are MONTHS/years old. On all 5 DVR's I'm seeing similar type video glitches that I never saw in previous months.
For example we just finished watching the Tudors last week. The most recent season of The Tudors ended in May of 09. We watched 2 episodes a few days before we activated MRV and there were no video issues. Then after MRV we watch the last episode of the Tudors and the video glitches we're seeing are the exact same time of glitches I'm seeing on all my other DVR's for recorded material that ares either days old...or weeks/months old. And I'm seeing this on the TV/DVR where we recorded it...not on another DVR through the MRV system/setup.
And we'd NEVER seen this type of video issues in the weeks prior to this.
I haven't noticed if it occurs on "live" programming. But I'll have to tell my wife to keep an eye out for that.
I was going to start a new thread asking if anyone else had seen anything similar after going to MRV. Guess I'll have to.
The only "live" viewing that I saw the glitches on are those that were also being recorded that we just happen to be watching live.
I haven't checked recordings that are very old yet, but I have a season and a half of Heros that I can check this out on:p.
