Over the past month I've had a wierd recurring failure when I try to record one channel on my Dish 722 DVR. As an Oakland A's fan, I try to record all of their games. Games are carried in the SF Bay area by Dish on channel 409 - Comcast Sports Network California - they appear on both the regular and HD 409 channel. Here's the problem. When I set up the DVR to record the HD channel, it appears to be recording but playback fails. The problem is intermittant. The failure shows up as either a black screen on playback, or the playback begins, stops and freezes. It also shows up as a failure when I select the "Start Over" option during recording I am able to record all other HD and regular channels fine. The current DVR is a replacement for a previous unit returned under warranty for THIS failure. I now believe this is NOT a hardware failure but a problem in the transmission. Does anyone have any information on how to fix this kind of problem? Is this a COMCAST conspiracy against DISH subscribers? Is this something seen on other channels? Is it a strange coincidence w/sunspots and the Oakland Atheletics schedule? (that could explain the A' performance the first half of the season) I get SO irritated when I pop a cold one but the ballgame I expect to watch has gone missing .... DOHHHH :eek2:.
