Thanks, lindend. Your info is always appreciated. Functionality is great so far. However, in the last couple weeks, I have had two problems. First thing - two Apaches on other TVs (not main TV) were not be able to see what had been recorded on the Jayhawk, so I unplugged the Jayhawk and then reconnected - seemed to work. Secondly, I lost about 80% of my recordings (about 25 HD recordings), which were a mix of half hour and hour long HD shows and some HD movies. I lost them all when our house lost power two days ago. I seem to remember the previous HD DVRs having the same issue, but it was mostly HD programs over an hour that were affected (if I remember correctly), and I don't remember it happening after I hooked up an external HDD. This time, I lost most everything accept for a few seemingly random programs. Is there a reason the internal HDD recorded items are affected by power outages but my previous box with external HDD didn't seem to be affected?
