eta: looking at the capacity charts for this size HD it looks like it would hold just over 600 hours at slp. So I think it's got plenty of space.
It happened once tonight and when I tried later, it didn't happen. I rewound the auto-recording and when it played back, it pixelated horribly. Not constant, but most of the time. I tried doing some plain recording and playback was normal. Then I tried rewinding the auto record again and it was normal. Is this the beginning of the end for my hard drive? This has never happened before and I'm the only one here that knows how to use the auto-record features so I am positive of that.
What do you mean by "rewind"? Are you using the REW button all the way back to the beginning?
I'd just wait and see if it's a recurring, persistent problem since there are only some SKIP-code tests to check the HDD, but the meaningful ones delete recorded titles and settings.
Wait, did you go back and rewatch what was pixelated before, or did you just go back to where you left off? Stupid question, probably, but could it be the source that was pixelated?
If this is not happening every time you RW, then I wouldn't worry about it. You noted that when you tried again it worked without issue. If it does happen again, try the slow RW for a couple seconds to see if that fixes it.

eta: what I meant to say was that the whole thing worked fine last night-not that I had to try different things to get it to work. Since that one incident, the auto record has played back totally normal.
