Crap. The 3300 has SO much potential! SO many features! It's just such a shame they gave up development. I love the picture! Love the VHS transfer. Love the USB features! I even don't mind the goofy interface and remote!
But I'm about to give up. Whenever it switches channels to record, the screen comes up blank. It shows full signal bars, but the screen is blank, and it records nothing. If I stop recording, switch the channel up and back manually, the picture comes back, and I can record manually.
Scheduling shows to record one after the other almost never works, whether its the same channel or a different one. It almost always locks up, and then I get neither show.
Shows longer than 2 hours (or recording from VHS) lock it up about 25% of the time. Very frustrating.
The auto set time function doesn't work in my area, and manual time gains a couple minutes a month. PIA
I can live with the (very) spotty program guide and resetting the time, but the lockups and channel blackouts are driving me nuts. Any thoughts? My current firmware is 1.8.4.
