Last night, my HR44-500 did something really strange. While watching recordings, the playback position on the time bar stayed at 0:00, regardless of where I was in the recording. This bug prevented fast forward from working properly, although other trick play functions were fine, including 30 skip. It also meant I could not stop watching a recording and later pick up where I left off, since resuming would start from the beginning. All recordings were affected, including those made weeks ago. Fortunately, a restart resolved the issue, so the HR44 is now behaving normally. I had to wait until late last night to do the reboot, though, because of recordings in progress. I am running the latest firmware, which I believe is 0xAC8, which was installed a week ago. I had no issues until last night, although I have heard that others are having problems with this release. I don't know if the issue I had is a one-time fluke, or if it is an inherent problem with this firmware. I decided to post this in case others may encounter the same issue.
