As you can see by my delightful username, I am ready to go crazy!!
A few months ago I started having problems with the dvr recording -- had a SA 8300HD box. Last week traded it in for the newer Samsung H3090 box. When I pause live tv and try to play it again, the picture freezes. When I playback a recorded show and either pause or FF and hit play again -- same thing -- picture froze, but audio was still going. I brought this box back and got another SA 8300....well this one made almost half of the channels pixelate, lose audio, break up, etc.. (I connect using HDMI, but also tried componenet -- same issues.)
Ok so if you are still with me, brought that back and tried another Samsung 3090 box.....and I am back to the same problems. Picture freezes everytime I pause and try to playback live TV....or if I playback a recorded show. In addition, some of the recordings were blank screens although the banner displayed the "show" being play along with the time left of the recording.
I am just having so many problems I don't know what to do. 3 boxes in 1 week is too much to handle....and I am wasting more of my time and energy going back and forth to the cable center.
Does anyone have a fix for this? Anyone experiencing the same problems? I live in NYC...and am ready to switch to Fios. So fed up with Time Warner's inferior BS service!!
Whew....needed to vent...lol...thanks for the help!!
