I've had my HR44 for a week. I am still getting used to it because it is a little different and quirky compared to the HR2x's I'm used to, but there is one problem which is very annoying. I am unsure if it is related to the latest software or a problem others have encountered prior.
I record games on NHL CenterIce. It is very common that the broadcast doesn't begin exactly when it is supposed to. It might start 20 or 30 seconds later. For the HR2x's this was not an issue. They would start playing the recording, and the program might take a few seconds to appear on the screen but no problems with playback.
With the HR44 I get an error message "all or part of this program did not record" and then it skips to the end of the recording. If I am starting a game for example an hour in, it will take me to that point in the recording where I can readily see the score. There is no way to start at the beginning of the program. If I stop it and choose start over, the same thing happens. If I choose resume, it will go back to the end of the recording.
I have gotten into the habit of playing a recording as the game is to start, and when the picture appears, I press pause. Then I exit, and when I go back to the recording later and choose resume, it will start at the beginning where I paused it.
Has anyone else had issues like this with any of the sports progamming? and if so, how did you get it fixed?
