Last night i recorded Chicago Fire and when i watched it today (or tried to) it would blackout every 3-5 mins. Tonight i tried watching Chicago PD with no issues... Was NBC having issues or do i have a possible system issue?

I recorded Chicago Fire and watched it Wednesday. No blackouts at all. Recorded from SAT, not OTA. What was the source of your recording?

Do you have an HR34 Genie DVR by chance?   There is a known issue with NBC channels in some markets with some HR34s.

Funny you should mention that.... i had a service call about a month ago where my HR34 was locking up on NBC channels and it was switched out with a HR44 then...

 

It must have been a temp issue as i watched NBC today for about an hour and had no issues...
