Hello,

I purchased a never used 721 on ebay and I've been pleased with it so far. Hey - better late than never. ;)

I've experienced two bugs that I was surprised are not fixed in a "mature" DVR. The 721 has the latest L322 software.

1) The infamous "jump to live" bug that was the subject of much celebration when it was fixed in the 501 years ago. I'm surprised to see it now in my 721 - particularly when it has two tuners.

For the newbies, the "jump to live" bug is when you are recording a program that you are also watching "delayed" at the same time (from using pause or start-over). Right at the moment that the recording finishes, the receiver jumps ahead to live.

This is especially odd with the 721, since it should be recording the program on a different tuner than the delayed viewing. I've encountered this bug twice already.

2) Some of the "Weekly" timers that I have created, will mistakenly record every day at that time and channel. I've encountered this bug three times already. I think that in each case, I have edited the timer to remove the 3 minutes extra at the end.

Has anyone seen these bugs while using their 721 ?

I need the head-striking-wall smilie - as the 721 does not have the "Jump To Live" bug. When I setup my 721, I copied all the timers from the 501 it replaced. This included an "Auto-Tune" timer for the same channel as the preceding 1 hour recording (so that the buffer would remain on that same channel - the 501 has a tendency to change to a previous channel after a recording).

I had forgotten this (partially because the 721's "date sort" of timers is faulty and also because I have turned off the annoying flashing timer icon), and so was assuming that there was a Jump-To-Live bug.

PS Nevertheless, I have recently encountered another instance of the second bug the "weekly timer records daily" bug. For some reason, this bug seems to be corrected simply by editing the timer, and clicking done...
