BUG REPORT: Some Recordings only allow Pause - Play - Stop - no other PVR functions
Posted 17 March 2004 - 10:50 PM
The recording looks normal - 64 minutes - and can be watched from the PVR menu. BUT - if I hit the FF, RW, Jump Back or Jump Forward PVR buttons while watching, the recording immediately jumps to the beginning and starts over. I can Pause and Play - and Stop works too, but that's all.
Anyone else seen this?

Dan, also only on WCBS-DT, or on other channels?
I now wish I had a dish pointing at 61.5 so that I could test this on mine. I don't have this issue from KCBS-DT off of 148.
Did I get the call letters wrong? I'm seeing this problem on Channel 9454 CBSHD on sat 148.

KCBS is on the 148 satellite and is out of Los Angeles.
Ok, so I can test this. I'll do so tonight.
guruka - exactly what television shows were the ones that you had a problem with?

If you guys get me that info, I'll tareget those programs for recording to test. I didn't get a chance to do this last night, as I was watching the BBall tournament rather than doing much testing.

I have recorded "Joan of Arcadia" on weekly timer and always have used the 30 second skip aheard to skip through commercials without issue. Channel is WCBS-DT off Dish. I have recorded several other WCBS and local CBS affil channel without issues.
Don - This problem does not happen every time I record these shows from KCBS-HD, only sometimes. Glad to hear that you have not seen the problem at all on WCBS.

channels that would be the other cure.

I've seen this problem on a variety of OTA material (no pattern evident to me yet). Sometimes the corruption begins partway through. I can skip at first but somewhere along the way it throws me back to the beginning
[...]If I watch them completely it has be in real time . (no ff, qs, etc)[...]
Originally I thought FF and REW didn't work, but I found that they are moving through the recording without updating the image. Now, I can get a pretty good feel for how long to keep going at 60x, then drop back to play and see just where I am.
To confirm that this is part of the problem, would people who are seeing this please try the "blind navigation" using FF & REW?
