I haven't had a satellite dish long enough to get snow on it, but your remark raises a question for me: would you have had the problem of needing to reboot your equipment immediately after the accumulated snow was thick enough to mess up the signal even if you could have brushed it off right away, or was it the length of time the signal was lost that made them mad?
My OTA (AM21N on HR34) and previous recordings worked on my C31 but were a bit problematic. Periodic freeze problems requiring a channel change or exit to come out of it. Sometimes audio dropped out - returned by pausing/unpausing.
Two sat recordings, Dexter and Homeland, didn't record of course. Don't know if they would have eventually been rescheduled. I added another showing explicitly so as not to miss them.
As a retired software engineer... I would expect this to have been a standard test case all along and a mature product like this should have automatically recovered 100%. The crap they consider good enough these days is just shocking.
