Has anyone else experienced problems when recording two shows on your DCT's at the same time? I have run into this strange issue sometimes when recording two shows simultaneously it messes up the total recorded time of the recorded show.
For example, here's the schedule I had lastnight:
Show #1, Channel #1: 7:00p-7:30 (not HD)
Show #2, Channel #1: 7:30p-8:00 (not HD)
Show #3, Channel #2: 8:00p-9:00 (HD)
Now, at first glance, that may not look like two shows recording at the same time, but because I have all my recordings set to add 4 extra minutes at the end, it ends up overlapping between show #2 and show #3.
Both show #1 and show #2 record just fine. But when it got to #3, it recorded the full 60 minutes, but when you go to play it back it only showed it a total length of 8 minutes. Looking at the file size, it was definitely a full hour.
I was about to delete and reschedule for a repeated timeslot later that night when I came across this post on the web about this:http://www.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3013
The people on that thread suggested that the entire show was viewable if you just let it play through completely and don't fast forward or rewind. I tried this and it worked.
Weird thing is that if you use the 30-second skip button, it skips like 5 minutes, and if you rewind or fast-forward, you end up all over the recording in inconsistent ways.
Anyone else seen this problem? I can't find any mention of this on MS knowledge bases. And I can't seem to get free support from MS because this is an OEM purchased copy of Vista (how freaking stupid is that).
I have a question into VM on this, but I wanted to see if anyone else has come across this. Thanks.
