    I am getting partial recordings on my HR-44. They start on time but end early with only 8, 10 or 20 minutes recorded. There were no weather interruptions, conflicts or OT games that cause it. My set-up is fairly simple but I do have an external WD AV 3 TB esata HDD. Anyone else have this issue or any ideas how to resolve?

    I have the same issue....had an hr44 installed 1 week ago and on 3 occasions programs stop before we have finished watching them. All of a sudden the delete screen appears midway through the recording....any ideas?

    I would remove the external HDD for a few days and set up about 1/2 dozen recordings. If the problem goes away then you know its related to the external HDD or cable. If it persists, it's within the HR44 That's how I would start narrowing it down.

    My HR44 recorded the same program twice at the same time on two seperate tuners.

    I recorded a program from Wapa (SD only channel) and when I go look at the play list it was recording twice from the same channel on seperate tuners.

    I found this odd and peculiar.I could understand recording the same show if one tuner was recording the Hd version and another one recording the sd version.

    If it happens again I guess a reboot is in order.
