Have had my HD TiVo for about a month and have noticed several things and was wondering if they were considered acceptable or I had a defective unit. Tried calling support, but that was a waste. I have had a SAT-T60 for about 4 or 5 years, so these are things that are noticeably different. 1. Slow switch between menus - when I delete a program after watching it or go to the now playing list or the TiVo menu from a show, it will often take up to 10 secs to switch over to the new menu. There will be a lot of times where I will have the last frozen image of whatever I was watching as the background (for several seconds) for the TiVo menu items. 2. Dropped audio/video - it usually happens only once or twice for for a sec or two during any given recorded program, but this is something I almost never saw with my SAT-T60. 3. Out of sync audio/video. This again is happening more often than I am used to, but it may have to do with the greater amount of surround sound programs that are getting recorded. 4. Slow menus - I would say slow on both guides, certainly much slower than the SAT-T60. 5. Not integrated SD OTA programming. Now this is the kinda strange thing that maybe I just don't understand. As an example, take CBS, which is channel 13 for me. Using my other Sony HD receiver, I can tune to channel 13 without having purchased local channels - it exists and is integrated into my guide. I can also tune to 13.1, 13.2, etc. On my HD TiVo, I cannot. I can tune to any of the 'digital' channel (13.1, 13.2, etc), but cannot tune to 13, without having purchased local channels via DTV. Is there some setup thing that I am missing? 6. Amazingly long waits when changing program record priority. Average is around 5-7 minutes, long was almost 14 minutes. Other than those annoyances, I haven't had any other problems. No strange noises. No missed recordings, no reboots, etc. Maybe I should count my blessings? Sorry if I am asking repeat questions, I looked through the forum and the only thing I saw discussed was the slow menu thing - which didn't really indicate if it was slow or slower than the equivalent on the non-HD Direct TiVo's.
