Well, I guess you all just answered my question. Yes, Both the Superbowl and Americal Idol (both Fox programs) have been broken up into random chunks of time. I've only had this 8300HD for less than a week and I have to say, it's a loooong way from being as good as the Tivo, but it does have it's advantages.
Fox doesn't seem to cripple my box entirely or screw up other programs. For example, my wife's soap opera records every day and that has been fine.
FYI - my setup is a LCoS JVC hooked up to the 8300HD with a Monster HDMI cable.
Anyone try the SATA hook up in back? That's next for me. I expanded the HDD on my Tivo, so if the SATA works, this will be TOO easy!
Well, hopefully this Fox programming issue gets fixed. I'd like to keep recording the Simpsons!
