Slo-mo? No - that HW with iView firmware is at my in-laws at the moment.

What should work is pausing, then FF. If I remember, I'll give it a try next weekend when I go up there.

Of course, IIRC we're using different firmware versions. Mine uses V13 (for the old Samsung demodulator chip) and you had to go with V3 for the new MStar 1237 demodulator. So they may not work exactly the same, but I'll try it out anyway.

BTW, I tried it at home with both HW-150 V2.1 and HW-180 V11 firmware and as far as I could tell, with HW firmware slo-mo is a no-go.

I've tried pausing then FF multiple times but it only FFs: both (1) pressing pause than pressing FF, and (2) holding pause then FF. Funny thing is like I said, it slo-mo'd a couple of times by accident but can't replicate using logical steps just mentioned.

Slo-mo in hi-def is especially interesting but not crucial, I guess. Thanks.

Hmm.... try pausing, then pressing the "skip fwd" key. I think I tried this too and it didn't work (it just skipped to the next file), but iView firmware may work differently.

(On other DVRs, skip-fwd while paused often advances a single video frame.)

I'm not sure these boxes are "supposed" to do slo-mo, so if the iView firmware can do it, it might be by accident. If you happen to figure out how to reproduce it please post back; it'd be a nice undocumented feature to discover.

On the Mediasonic forum I found someone complaining that when changing channels, the video would go slo-mo briefly but the audio remained at full speed, putting the two out of sync. That might have been specific to his setup though; I haven't seen anyone describe that problem here.

Will do.

BTW, I didn't have any luck getting slo-mo while time-shifting either. In time-shift mode, skip-fwd does nothing (as you might expect), whether paused or not. FF doesn't work either, but if you press FF while paused when time-shifting, it acts like the "Play" button and starts playing at normal speed. If you do that when watching a recording, it goes straight to 2x fast-forward. I thought it odd that FF acts a bit differently in those two situations.
