I will try to do the same, but, for now, I will say this: I exercised our unit extensively
w/in the initial 30 days of ownership. One thing I know I certainly did was have two shows recording while watching a recorded show. I'm nearly as certain we paused and/or "rewound" and/or forwarded/skipped, while watching.
I recall being pleasantly (somewhat) surprised when the DVR+ handled it all with aplomb. We were coming from a series of Panasonic DVD recorders that, quite honestly, would screw up, badly, if you so much as thought
about doing something so outrageous as to actually use
their capabilities in other than the least challenging ways.
Ever since the 111R update we're seeing occasional glitches.
Maybe just coincidence.
ETA: Ok, we did close
