Can't watch a program pvr'd because of terrible picture...major pixel drop and sound distortion. Only when pvr'ing one program. Anyone have this problem?
Lance! Success!! I recorded American Horror Story - Coven from 7-10 pm. All recorded perfectly with no pixillation or audio dropouts. I am a happy camper now. Thank you so much for all your help and concern. I really appreciate it! Cheers. PS I meant to reply yesterday but was not able to get on the Shaw site.
It only happens on the one program, and it only happened once, I would suspect a station issue at that time
When you say only one program, you mean this occurs every time you try recording that same program and doesn’t affect any other program? Do you record any other programs off the same channel without issue?
Also have you noticed any trouble with Live TV?
Thanks for your comment, don. It has occurred the last 3 times I've pvr'd the same program on the same station (FXCanada). I am able to pvr many other programs without this happening. It has happened only when pvr'ing the one program on FXCanada. No, no problems with Live TV.
You may very well be right, kevinds. The problem has occurred 3 times but only when pvr'ing the same program on the same station (FX Canada). I am able to pvr many other programs on other stations without this problem. Hmm...a problem with FX Canada is likely. Thank you for your comment.
Which program are you trying to record? Also have you tried setting to record at a later showing or always at the same time period?
Thanks don. Attempting to record American Horror Story-Coven at 7 pm (Vancouver) I haven't tried recording a different time. Think I'll try that tomorrow night. Thanks again!
Alright, which model of PVR? Which program? What time is it on? FX in HD or SD?
I'll try recording it too, see what happens
Hi juskiddin. Are you still having the issue with pixillation on just FX recordings? It's odd if live TV is okay but only the recordings for this one channel are affected.
As our friends have asked, which shows are you recording? And at what times and in HD or SD?
Motorola DCX3510-M, lance. I'm trying to record American Horror Story-Coven at 7 pm Wednesdays. Oh, and it's in HD. This is the only program I record on FX. I'm going to try again tomorrow night and see what happens. Thanks a lot!!
I'm going to set my 3510 at home to record this too. Thursday morning, we can compare notes. If kevinds joins us, we'll have a good case study!
Thanks lance, really appreciate it !
Was fine on my Gateway and DCX3400
I have a 3510 and recorded all of the American Horror Story - Coven episodes, all the way from 6-12pm PST. This morning, I went through them all (watched the first couple minutes of each and then ahead 5 minutes at a time). All of them came out nice and clear, no pixillation or audio dropouts. That narrows it down to just your own 3510.
I'll send you a direct message for you account info. I'd like to take a closer look at your 3510 for you.
I hope this is the end of the pixillation issues for you. Best to monitor and get back to us if it comes back up again!
Will do, Lance. Thank you again. I'll let you know if this occurs again. Cheers
Thank you kevinds. I had success last night recording American Horror Story - Coven...from 7-10 pm pacific time. Thank you for your time. Cheers
No problem, I will say, watching a few seconds every 3 minutes, it was odd to see a talking head, with no context why it was so
Ha! Now I understand your comment. Hadn't watched the program when I read your reply...was a bit puzzled. Yes, the talking head. Love this show!
juskiddin which time zone are you in? 7pm is showing as repeat, 8pm as new (Mountain Time Zone)
But I set it on my Gateway and my DCX3400, if you are recording one of the repeats, let me/us know
He's in van. So for us mountain it would be 8pm.
