I hope they don't implement across the board encryption. My guess is they won't. If so, I will not do the upgrade, if in fact this new feature is firmware.

Again, PlayLater doesn't encrypt the...

So, recording looks like it is out for the DVR+. Wonder why they say they are "working on that?" I guess we will see, but it doesn't look promising.

Yes, PlayOn/PlayLater uses software to encode...

I have replaced caps in HDTVs, but never wall warts. One of the few things I haven't taken apart. I'll have to correct that. I have had several go bad thru the years, but just assumed the windings...

Not sure he wants to open up the DVR+ and take voltage readings from the PC board, if that's what you are saying? Kind of hard to decipher your posts sometimes.

Once again, as mentioned, a quick...

Thanks for the tip on the gizmo. I like that it measures amps as well as voltage. Good for checking how much current a particular drive draws.

So, do you know if the more expensive remotes allow remapping of the remote's device buttons? I believe the 300 is discontinued, and the cheapest Harmony now is around $60.

I looked at the 650 on...

Correct. Replace the drive, plug the Mag in, power on, press "Skip-0-7-9" on the remote, and it will format the new drive. Note that you only have 3 seconds to press the combination.

I wonder what is causing this? Perhaps it is a Rovi issue? Or maybe the machine is confused? How many shows would you say you have on your DVR+? How many recordings are scheduled?

Not to be rude, but isn't Benq a really, really cheap, low end brand? Perhaps it is not shielded as it should be?

I'm still wondering why you couldn't have just plugged into a network with a cable and downloaded straight to the DVR+?

Did you try that and it didn't work? Or were you not doing the 114R update?

Agreed. The only saving grace with using a 320GB with the Mag is that is has 6 different quality settings, and I would use a mid/lower Q setting for recording SD TV shows.
