Tried to unplug it and didn't fix anything the first time but then I unplugged it again for like minutes and it seems to be semi OK right now. Still seems to be having issues with the end of shows but is recording shows.
Thanks for the thoughts.
My problem has attacked intermittently for a few months now. I have successfully corrected it before by unplugging the unit for a minute. This go round it doesn't seem to be falling for that tactic. I wonder if just leaving it unplugged for longer could make a difference. Worth a try I guess.
My actual recordings are all fine as long as I just hit play and then nothing else until the show is over. They look fine, they whole show is there, etc.
