Ok, I've tried recording from my 811 more now since the 2.81 upgrade. It does come on but seems to be random as to when. I've tried three different times, the first time the video and audio came on 2 mins after the time was set, the second they came on 5 mins after the timer was set. The third time I don't know as I set it for an hour early to be sure I got the whole show. It worked that time. Not sure what the deal is but what I see on my recording is black screen for some time, then the info text box pops up with the time the timer was set for and then seconds later the text box changes to the current time (2 or 5 mins later) and the video and audio click in. Anyone else notice this?
