I'll load a recorded program, and I'll decide I don't want to watch the beginning commercials/intro so I'll hit the Fast Forward button twice . Everything is fine until I try to play the video. The Fast forward doesn't stop and after a few seconds of fast forwarding the box will reboot itself.
This happened twice with South Park(Non HD) and once with Scrubs(HD unit)
I have problems like that all the time. I have the non-HD unit.
Even sometimes I'll be watching a recorded program, and I fastforward through the commercials just fine, then at some point in the middle of the show I have the problem that you explained. I can rewind to before the commercials and watch the commercials just fine, but if I fastforward through them and then try to play, it freezes and will not play.
In fact I find the boxes to be very buggy.
I have yet to record an entire movie without having the audio and video get out of synch during playback at least 3 times within the course of movie. Pausing or stopping does not help. The only solution is to hit rewind and then play and it seems to re-synch itself.
I've had several different boxes from BHN and all have had this problem.
I find that loss of signal or pixelation during recording often leads to these problems.
Another problem I see is if I do have a signal; drop out for a split secodn during recording, when playing back, it just freezes, stopped in time at that point and you can't get by it. Often I have to rewind, then fast forward hoping to skip over that point, then rewind back as close to that point as I can and play from there (don't rewind back to this point, or it's frozen again.
It's all very annoying to me. If I want to transfer anything to DVD, I have to sit there and watch the whole thing and be ther to make these corrections, or half the show might have out of synch audio and video.
