Just got an HR24-200. Been having the AM21 blank recording issue with my HR24-500. Wise to switch and hook up the HR24-200 to the AM21 or will I just be in store for the same problem?

I'd say switch. From all my reading, the 500 is the only HR24 with the AM21 bug.

It certainly can't hurt to try, that's a perfect step in troubleshooting. Would you please stop back and report your results for others?

Thanks - I will try tonight, test tomorrow and report back. Fingers crossed! I had the dreaded blank OTA last night again on the 500 so I am at my wit's end with that.

Tested last night. About 20 ota recordings on various channels and no problems.
