[DVR] 7232 DVR Recording Problem

I have a 7232-2 DVR. Every once in awhile, the schedled recordings only record 5-6 seconds and then quit. I do the unplug-10 minutes-replug sequence and it works ok for a few days. Also, sometimes, when locally plugged commercials end, the screen and audio go blank. I have to change channels and return to get picture/sound back

Has anyone seen this behavior? I am on 1.9 in VHO9a, I think that we are on the tail end of the schedule for the 1.9.1 update.

Looked at that. Everything seems to be correct 1080 16:9 HD. Good try, though!

Have you tried an STB autocorrect?

No. How is it done?

Found it. It hung up saying no data, try later.

I used to have this problem on my old 6416. I called tech support and swapped it out for a new 7232 and have never had the problem again. You probably have a bad box.

If I need to change the DVR, will all of my recordings on the external storage drive be wiped out when I attach it to a new DVR? Are the external recordings tagged to the S/N of the DVR?

Yes and yes - the eSATA drive is encrypted to the original host DVR - think of it as expanding the internal storage of the DVR.

How did I know that would happen! My father always told me to never ask a question that you don't know the answer to! LOL!
