I generally leave my DTT900 on most of the time during the heavy recording season (when prime time shows are new). It's hooked up to my DVR so that I can record the widescreen versions of the shows we like, most of which come on at 10 PM when we're typically asleep.
Most of what I record is from CBS, so I leave the tuner tuned to our local CBS affiliate. This week, a glitch happened.
GLITCH: For some reason, sometime between Tuesday at 11 PM after the conclusion of WITHOUT A TRACE and Thursday at 9 PM before the start of CSI, the DTT900 got into some weird mode. The picture that recorded for that CSI showing was a static image looking like half of a CBS closing credit (with the yellow border), with blocks of black text on blue background looking like numbers.
The sound recorded just fine, but the picture was just that static "glitch" image.
Once I discovered it, I tried turning the unit off, but neither the remote nor the front switch worked.
I ended up unplugging it from the power socket, and once it was turned on again, things seemed fine.
I'm wondering if perhaps a random power blip might have caused the error.
