Good ideas and input. Never checked my memory allocation, would be curious to see that. OK, just checked, Allocated block count matches exactly the Used block count (both 0x9CA). Free blocks are 0x23. No errors or leaks. Item count = 273, Valid count = 267, Deleted = 6. What do NoPath=6 and BadDev=6 signify?
All of my lockups have happened in 90x speed, my usual. I disabled 3x and 30x since I never used it and found the four speed key click progression too slow for me, when I mostly use 90x or 9x when 'going slow'. I'll also throw some 30-sec advances into the mix as well. I probably wouldn't have as many lockups if I could be patient and just simply 'go slow' at 9x through the commercials, but that's not in my nature.
So how do you get the current DHG date and time to be displayed?
I get the time from the Rec_List window, and can only see the current date when I go to create a new manual recording. I'm sure there must be a better way. You'd think the System menu would contain that info, but it does not.
So it turns out that my 5-minute lockup set the clock back 27:24:21 behind the real time - it lost a whole day on top of it all. You don't notice that by only seeing the FP and Rec_List clock. I had to re-edit all my recordings. Again. Sigh.
Lots of initial cursing, but the edits went faster than I feared. My brain adjusted to everything in the schedule being off one day behind. DHG lives for yet another day.
I feel like the machine is being wise by breaking me in slowly to the pain of post-TVGOS, first set him back two hours, then when he's handled that, set him back one whole day, then....Edited by teleskier - 4/12/13 at 11:01pm
