Banners with gibberish on some PVR recordings
Posted 18 July 2002 - 07:58 AM
on the descriptive banners of some of my PVR recordings.
For example, the wife watches a certain soap every
day. It records just fine and the title displays correctly
on the "events" screen but while playing, if I press
"browse" or "cancel", the banner pops up with "^%#ssy*"
"Rated G', "Not yet purchased" and additional nonsense.
Is this PVR headed for trouble or should I just give it
a good swift boot in the hard drive?

("Passions", WNBC, M-F 2pm EDT)
It has occured every day this week. I am checking other
recordings to see if the problem occurs there as well.
When the banner shows corrupt data, so does the
"info." (i.e.: instead of "Character A badmouths Character
B," I'll see "&$@)+klypys?" or something similar.

You could also try removing this event from the timer menu & re-entering it later.
