I bought my 8300HD (Rogers) in Sept-2008.

Since the beginning, I have issues of audio drop once in a while and this issue will be resolved once I power cycle the PVR. This is annoying but it does not happen too much.

Questions:
1. Is this 8300HD a reliable PVR? Few of my friends have had issues with this PVR. One of them actually replaced her PVR 3 times in one year.
2. This model is a few years old, the internal hard drive was upgraded from 80GB to 160GB 2 years ago. Do you know of any replacement soon?

The SA8300HD I've rented has worked fine for over 5 years ago, so mine has been very reliable at least.
The software may be the buggy problems, not the hardware, it varies with each cable system. I have Time Warner.
