HR-21 let me down yesterday!

I've had my HR-20 for over a year. After some initial problems with it, it has been rock solid for me. I just got an additional HR-21 700 a week ago and it missed 2 recordings yesterday.

I scheduled it to record the minor league futures game on ESPN2 and a movie on ABC Family in the evening. When I click play on both shows they come up blank and immediately ask me if I want to delete them. I was able to record a third show yesterday but that one was manually recorded. The two shows that failed to record were both programed recordings. Where should I start to figure out why this happened and prevent it from happening again. I'm running 0x235.

Do you still have the blank recordings? You may want to try rebooting the DVR... Many users have reported being able to play the recordings after rebooting...

edit: also, submit the info here.... http://www.iamanedgecutter.com/Projects/BGRecordings/
directv is gathering as much info as they can on blank recordings to try and prevent them in the future...
