I installed VLC and the momentary freezes nearly disappeared. I'll need to put some more miles on to see how it really performs. But THANKS.
Q1. Is VLC the preferred player now (I've been away for years)?
Q2. What is the preferred recording method (CW EPG makes *.ts files, Win Media Center makes something else, others....)
Q3. Why would the player make such a difference as far as (nearly) fixing the momentary freeze problem?
Q4. There was still a hint of a problem even with VLC so I think something is still causing a problem during the recording (maybe I'll know more after using VLC longer) - any more help on that?
Q5. Unrelated - but what was Microsoft thinking when they decided I only wanted a single playback device at a time. This really messed up my plans.
Q6. Also unrelated - but what was Microsoft thinking when they decided if I wanted Media Center full screen on my "right" monitor, I would want my mouse trapped there so I could not do any work on "left" monitor? maximizer allowed me to move the mouse but seemed to degrade the video so I quit using it.
