    Very Strange... Yesterday I get home and I see my hr20-100 blue light rotating backwards. I fire up the set and I am watching the day befores programming from 9pm.
    I look at the LIST and its NOT a recording.
    AT the bottom I have the status bar and it reads whatever program was on and the time but the green bar is always at the right towards the end of th eprogram even though Im watching from the start.
    It was like 1 big file. Yet the names of the programs and their times were displayed.
    SO I fast forward a bit and I watch. Now I couldnt go back in time form there but still... weird.

    SO I fast forwarded and scanned the ENTIRE 23 hours seeing everything that was on .
    When I got to about 90 minutes( which makes sense), the green bar status became full and performed as usual until I got up to TRUE live tv.

    Thats this was very interesting and wanted to pass this along.

    I looked this morning and it had not happened again and all is well and back to norm.

    Hmmm, maybe they could create a 23-hour DLB DVR! That would make Mr. Bolt's head explode... :lol:

    Gee, you'd almost think he was trying to find someone that could explain the problem...

    Gee, you'd almost think he'd do well to read the responses in his first thread on this same topic and follow-up with any concerns over there ...

    Nothing a 100 does would surprise me. What is the answer, Drew? If you know.

    No, I suggested the OP post in a specific issues thread - the thread for the version of software the OP was using. (There's a specific thread for each model and software release.)

    Nope - no idea. As I posted in the other thread: "There were no specific circumstances that brought it about, it didn't seem to affect recording space, and for the most part was benign." It really has been absent for months (since last August), so this is a surprise return.
