I also saw split recordings when moxi reboots in the the middle of a recording. Also, i recorded a series of a sports event and had it preset a few days in advance. The 5th episide of it got split so i wanted to see why because that ruined the whole series for me. I disconnected the external hdd thru the menu to find that the internal hdd went full 100% while recording it. I dont know why it didnt put the whole 5th episode on the external hdd but we cant control that.

One of the good things about Moxi is that it will remember when a recording screws up and will try to complete the show when it comes back to life.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one this has happened to, but I'm still confused. In the case of the documentary recorded recently, I know it recorded completely in one recording, and that recording was on the external drive (survived in one piece after everything on the internal drive disappeared, disappeared when I disconnected the external drive through the Setup menu). It was only after installing the new internal hard drive that the recording split into two. And, after I posted, I noticed the count was off on a couple of other series recordings, and when I looked, I saw that several recently recorded episodes on the external drive are also split into two. . . and in one case, three recordings per episode. Weird. I can't positively say that didn't happen before the internal crash, but I'm fairly sure I would have noticed the counts being off before.


I am, however, positive with the documentary: it recorded in one complete recording on the external drive and somehow split into two recorded segments when I replaced the internal drive.


Thoughts?


The good news is that all channels are right as rain after 5 minutes on the phone with the TWC CC magic folks this AM, thanks to the phone number you posted in the replacement hard drive thread

I also wanted to mention that I didn't have the stock internal hdd in when this happened. It split the remaining part of the 5th episode to the external hdd. I'm also happy to say it didn't delete all recordings on the internal hdd. Maybe that happens when the drive is on its last days.
