My DTVPal has suddenly become a real headache. A few months ago it began receiving fringe channels, sometimes 20 at a time, which corrupted the timers and caused them all to skip. In order to get it to work again, I'd have to reset to factory defaults to clear out all of the channels, and then it would work again for a few days until it picked up all of the fringe channels again and skipped all timer recordings. I've reset it probably 7 times since the middle of May, and it seems the amount/frequency of fringe channels its picking up has finally decreased considerably. However, now it is often refusing to record anything unless I do a soft reboot. Even if I hit the record button while watching live TV, the red light will go on, then go off 5 seconds later without recording anything. The daily schedule shows "skipped" like any other missed timer. I've checked all of the diagnostics which show nothing out of the ordinary. Any suggestions?
