I have had my hr20 for about 3 weeks, and up until tonight, Ihadn't had any major problems. Tonight Ihad 2. First, Ihad the same problem recording "lost" that others had in an earlier thread. My other problem is that at times, none of my trick plays work. There are times I can't pause, fast forward, rewind etc. I seem to have the most problems when i use the "previous" button on my remote. I'm not what I'm doing wrong, but I'm wondering if it has something to do with the one live buffer. I know Ican't use dual buffers, but Iasumed that whatever channel Itune to would then have the live buffer, enabling me to use trick plays. Earl, or anyone else with knowledge of this.....I couldsure use your help. thanks in advance.
