Will Amazon.com eventually sell the 515? It has been available for about 4 months at Walmart.com, which I assume has a deal to be the sole source for a certain amount of time.
I have a Amazon Prime account with 2-day free shipping and no sales tax (~$20 savings compared to Wal*Mart) so I am hoping Amazon will have the 515 soon. My 2 year old Phillips went belly up and off to recycling last month, so I don't want to wait too long before pulling the trigger. I'll bite the bullet and buy from Wal*Mart if they still have exclusive rights to the 515 for much longer.
In order to find out more, whether those and other Funai products are new or "refurbished by Funai," I called their 888 number today at 10:50 a.m. (PST). The recorded message advised that I had reached them "after business hours." Thinking that they might be out to lunch I called two more times, the last at 1:26 p.m. I got the same message.
Hope you get everything working. We're here for you. Ask away. What cable company?
Well, AJ, that's a great question!
I've heard that the 515 has NOT been discontinued, but there's no "evidence" yet of new shipments to Walmart or other sellers... maybe something interesting will happen in the next week?
Anyone wanting a 515 should prob. do so within the next week.
I just bought one. If there is a new model out next week I will hold you responsible. I don't like 'interesting'.
Per wajo's suggestion, I have changed my audio cables to run from my Maggie to my TV. I have sound in the lower analog channels; but, the scrambled channels still have no sound. I have attached a file where I show a breakdown of how all my cables run.
On the back of my Samsung there are 4 HDMI INPUTS. They are listed as HDMI 4, HDMI 3, HDMI 2 (ARC) and HDMI 1/DVI
When I switched the Maggie's HDMI to HDMI3 in the TV... there still was no change.
Any thoughts on what I still need to change or add????
I have Service Electric Cable TV Service.
I have all the channels up to the Ultimate Digit Package... along with HBO, Cinemax, Music and High Def.

Can I confirm your trouble as below?
Model : H2160MW9yes
1) Recorderd 2 hour show.
Question) Whether it was timer recording or manually pressed record button.
2) You did playback the recorded video.
yes, and "arrowed thru" the last 10 minutes, no sound no picture
3) When the program reached to 1:50 hour, all screen went black out.
Also sound was stopped.
Question) What is "50 mark"?
> and at the 1 hour and 50 mark the playback went dark.
yes went black no sound at the 1:50 mark thru 1:59
4) But the Time counter was still moving in spite of just black screen shown.
Question) When did you meet same problem before (apploximately)?
Superbowl sunday and again on 3/1/2011
Question) Do you still have the recorded video in your unit?
deleted both. But at first the superbowl was left alone, until after viewing both videos, then deleted both
Question) I understand you met it 2 times. Have you recorded more than 2 hours and watched it without trouble?
NO. This 2nd attempt is the first video recorded over 1 hour in length since the superbowl
I appreciate if you can confirm avobe-mentioned my understanding and answer against my question.
To help 234, could you tell him:
Recording speedHD? ( or HQ?) speed.
Recording to HDD or DVDrecorded to HDD
TV or DTVDTV, both Fox network
[One hour 50 means 1:50 into a 2:00 recording]
Two hours is a very popular recording time. I have used it often for movies but always at HQ. Having your condition happen twice is really strange. I hope an answer can be found.
