Thanks
Blue SELECT button brings up the "Look Back/Start Over" menu. Only works on some channels, some shows. Try ABC, etc. to see what it looks like when it works.

1080i is the highest shown for TWC. Your TV (being a 1080p I suspect) will still technically actually show at 1080p. I just leave my DVR at 1080i so it converts 720p, 480i, up before getting to the TV. I did not like the delay of the TV changing input resolutions as I changed channels.

I was just reading them but I didn't write the exact wording down.
You can read it when going to FACTORY TEST MODE and back. It stays on the screen for a few seconds until the unit reboots.

I was attempting to add my WD 1TB eSATA. For the first time since we got this DVR in September 2013, we were down to just 6% instead of the normal 90+ we normally hang at. Unfortunately the GF woke up for work and couldn't wait and let me make more attempts.
I was trying the Extended Diags 03. But I don't think anything happened.

I believe I had read before that a factory reset or something was required for it to recognize and mount the eSATA drive. I coulnd't find that information today. I guess I didn't bookmark it when I read it way back whenever.

An issue ever since they started changing the OS for High Definition and Digital, nearly every single show is cut off in the last minute.
We don't always have space to add on a minute. On some of the worst channels - Disc, Hist, and many more, we have to cut a first minute from another program to add a minute. This hasn't been a Samsung DVR issue. We had it with the SA8###
It sure doesn't help when so many prime time programs are 60 plus 1 or 2 or 3 minutes instead of just 60. I tend to stop watching the ones that run long.

Do you know how to disable Factory Test Mode? And, if so will you please enlighten me on the process? I tried going into the Advanced Diagnostics Menu and entering the "TIME" password as I did to enable the factory test mode, but when I do the screen goes blank.
