I am not at home today and can't access my HR20, but can anyone relay if video stuttering is still a problem with 0x134? It was still a problem with 132 (2 days ago), but haven't run my system with the new release.

Video stuttering is such an annoyance.

What is this video stuttering you speak of? Are you talking about the MPEG4 encoding bugs on some of the locals that make it look like an 8mm movie?

Last night my roommate was watching a movie on IFC and the video was stuttering.. A LOT! I assume it was still 0x132 since I didn't know 134 was on the way. I'll check on it later to see which version I have and when it was downloaded. Looks like 134 was released last night so my HR20 would have still had 132. It was the first time I noticed it. It was not recording or anything. Glad to see I wasn't the only one.

edit: it was still running 132. 134 was downloaded later that night.

Video stuttering is a little tough to describe but I'll try..

You are watching a show and then it seems like half of the images are missing and the motion of the image is not continuous. Kind of like when making a cartoon as a kid in a notepad and then you make it move, you can see it isn't continuous, but the image does move.

The video stuttering seems to last maybe 5 seconds at a time, but is very annoying. It happens when I am watching HD or SD...sometimes once or twice an hour. Can we get this thing fixed?!?!?

Are you still getting this? My HR20 was doing it with 0x132 but it updated itself to 0x134 early yesterday morning. I watched an MPEG2 HD recording with no stuttering last night, and I had SD MPEG2 running for a bit while checking some menu settings and didn't see any stuttering. Last time it showed up it happened after it had been running for a few days so we'll have to wait and see.

I don't think I have ever seen this one, if I understand your description.

I used to get occasional 'distortion', where it freezes for 2 or 3 seconds, and the bottom half of the screen fills up with little squares and junk. But luckily haven't even seen that for a while. It does seem the locals are usually where such things happen though.

Did you try to pause for few seconds and pressed play? I never noticed this, but was just wondering if it could be related to something that gets corrected in the live buffer.

I didn't try pausing but we did do RW to get back to watch some parts of the movie. I wasn't the one watching so I assume that the time I saw it stutter it was doing it when playing back some of the buffer, not live TV. I did ask my roommate how long that had been going on and he said it had been there since he started watching. So I don't think pausing would have fixed it.
