To The Blarg,
Funny, out of probably 40+ recordings mine has never missed a single one. You said it "fails quite often," so how long exactly have you been using it, and how many shows have failed? /// .... I have had it for about a month and a half. It failed to record about 10 shows in the first week, and about 5 in the second week. I am still watching it to see what it does, but this week, none have failed.
I wish you could rename unknown shows...but I would rather spend the time figuring out why the tvgos isn't working. What exactly is your problem? Do you get tvgos data?/// .... Yes, I get the data. As stated by numerous of us, even thought the recorder has the show name and a "red dot" with "W" on the program to start recording, you can watch the recorder move to (say) 9 PM, and no recording occurs. I have not had the problem in the last two weeks, so maybe the unit needs to "settle down" ... Maybe the TVGOS is not "stable" when it loads intially???
And you said you "concur" with the recording assessments....well sorry, but some of our units work perfectly well. ... Ah yes ... but you underestimate how many variables are involved with getting every unit to work - not just yours! And I guess you would jump to the "operator" error" conclusion first. Well, if you look at the data some of us are reporting, there is not too much room for error. TVGOS program right there on he screen in front of me, "red dot" on, "W" on, time comes and goes ... no recording!!!
So just thank your lucky stars that you are one of the lucky ones.
I also concur with your statement that it is likely to be the TVGOS software. But when Sony puts it in their devices, they take ownership of it - so to me it's a Sony problem.
And by the way, I own a lot of Sony equipment, and I am thinking of buying more (like the Hi-def camcorder) ... but problems like this sour my overall view of the company and their capabilities.
