Many of the programs I record turn out to be unplayable, often right from the beginning of a program, but even more frustrating is when it happens partway through. When I try to watch a recorded program, the picture suddenly degrades, becomes pixilated, and finally goes black and defaults to the list of recordings. I have been coping with this problem for the better part of a year, but am becoming increasingly frustrated. At first it seemed I could temporarily fix the problem by rebooting the PVR (after the fact, of course - very annoying), but that remedy no longer seems to work, and in any case I could never get the corrupted recording back. Is there anything else I can do?
I am beginning to wonder why I paid for a PVR! It would have been smarter to put my money into renting DVDs or subscribing to Netflix.
