My HR34-700 over the past couple months has started to show some odd behavior. It started in November when I would pause live TV for an extended period of time, when I attempted to resume the paused program the audio would continue but the picture would be frozen. I thought this might just be related to a glitch for the network or the device and just restarted it and everything appeared fine. Starting on 12/31 I was attempting to record two live events while my wife and I were gone and came home to find that both showed that they had fully recorded but upon trying to watch them we could get 1 minute into the program before again it would continue the audio but the picture would be frozen. When attempting to fast forward or skip ahead the counter shows the correct skipping but nothing changes and eventually just gets to the end asking if you wish to delete the program. This has now happened on our local Fox, local NBC, ESPN, H2, FS1, and Fox Sports Midwest - so it doesn't appear to be tied to a specific station. I do have an AM21 plugged into it but I have tried unplugging it and still have the same results. I have restarted the machine several times hoping that it would fix the problem but it keeps cropping up. I have checked all the connections and run diagonistics with the HD passing all of the tests 100% without error. It has only happened on shows 1hr in lenght or longer thus far and only once has it froze outside of the first 1 min (it once froze in the last minute of a recording). It is really hit or miss and no way to seemingly know when it will occur. It also is not weather/reception related as in some of the instances other programs are recording at the same time and are just fine.
Has anyone else encountered this? If so - what is the exact problem and is there a solution.
