But do we have any confirmation that our drives are the same spec, from the same manufacturer, or even using the same architecture? Do we know how many vendors are building this box?HDNut said:I don't think so because I have been recording two MPEG4 shows while watching a prerecorded MPEG show all at the same time without any problems. I suggested some days ago that posters should give more information, such as:
Is the issue observed related to MPEG4 local HD channels? Where are the MPEG4 stations located? I get mine from San Francisco and San Jose in California and I don't seem to have most of the issues posted by others. My only issues with MPEG4 redordings have to do with the 30-sec slip and 6-sec back features. But I never get the BSOD nor missing recordings nor blank spots inside recordings. And my HR20 was installed on September 15th.
Have you tried what I described above? Record two MPEG4 shows at the same time while you playback an MPEG4 show recorded previously? How many issues do you observe during, say 30 minutes? I don't observe any issues, so I think it is safe to say that there is a data throuput problem in the HR20. I'll be looking forward to more posts on this thread.
Maybe for some reason there's a 7200rpm HDD in your box and a 5400 in mine? I haven't opened mine up, I don't want to void the warranty.
I have a problem on any mpeg 4 playback, and I've went through 3 boxes...
