I tried my 6208 DVR in PAUSE mode for over an hour. After an hour, it was still in PAUSE mode (i.e., it didn't exit automatically). When I resume playback, the recording "skipped" every 20-30 seconds over the next 10 minutes before gradually going away.
I encountered this very same problem with an HD program I recorded with my day-old 6208. I had the machine on pause for over an hour (I've done this with my TiVo numerous without any adverse effects), and when I tried to resume watching, the program was very herky-jerky. Imagine watching something in half-second increments separated by three-quarter-second pauses and you can picture what I was watching.
Also, my attempts to fast forward resulted in the program basically pausing instead of advancing. I got so frustrated that I deleted the program and set it to record a replay at a later date.
Strangely enough, this same bug seemed to also be affecting a second HD program I had recorded as well, herky-jerky viewing as well as stand-still fast forwarding. After the first program was deleted however, the second HD program seemed to play and fast-forward just fine. Note that SD programs I had recorded seemed to be unaffected by this, what I assume is indeed a bug.
Has anyone else had these or similar problems with the 6208?
