Googling didn't find me any answer to this, only about the accompanying beeping. Before I go looking through its menus for something that maybe isn't anywhere, can someone report whether a Roamio...

csun213, something you might try, which I can't without DirecTV, if the DTV receiver has the outputs, is connecting its component outputs to the TV instead of HDMI, keeping the DTV box's HDMI port...

How do we "know" 500 is wrong for a 513 max size? My oldest, a 2160A, has a 500, as does my 515. Both my 513s do have 320s, and my newer 2160A has its original 160.

This sounds like the HD in your 557 has dying sectors or is otherwise failing beyond what the 557 can cope with. HD replacement is relatively easy as long as you can work a phillips screwdriver, and...

Take it back out, hook it up to a PC, and run the manufacturer's diagnostics and/or smartctl on it. Maybe it's defective. I put a 320G WD Green in one of my mags. It barely outlived its warranty. :(

It's daily routine here. On one machine I have roughly 200 recordings captured from buffer out of a total of 527, on another, roughly half of 149.

Were all chapter marks lost, or only the ones you created? Dubbing in real time eliminates your marks and creates marks in the fixed intervals selected in the auto chapter menu.

They do use stock pix. What counts is what your burner program in your PC tells you when you put in a blank. If they're 8X, they're good. 12X, what the JVC Taiyo Yuden (JDMR-ZZ-SK8) 8X DVD-R Silver...

Which would have what to do with a thread about particular DVR models? Maybe the answer has already been provided in an appropriate thread, or could be if you asked where topical.
