Hi there Harry, let me clarify exactly what my situation is vs copy/pasting another persons.
1) seems like on some HD DVRd shows, when I FF, it goes to a black screen (only on 2x and 3x, at 1xFF its a flicker on/off of the picture. Not all HD shows do this but its not isolated to FOX as it did this for an ABC show and an NBC show recently. I am not certain, but I dont think this is occuring with nonHD shows
2) Not sure on the newest DVX3400-M if I will be getting playback errors so waiting to determine if that holds true. The last one when I went to play some recorded shows simply would kind of freeze what I was watching and not play the DVRd show, and then state (I think) playback error). Sometimes I would get a recording error.
3) spoke to Cox, they have already 'released' (soft launch) the whole house DVR. When i called to get my name on the list, i was placed on hold, the person spoke to his supervisor and instead of taking my name, he instead got approval to set up an installation. The additional cost is about $15. Thought others might want to know this information. The installation fee is $75. Im on the fence....

And if you had it with two receivers in a row, I would check the error count on that device. Any issues with watching normal TV? Specially on those channels your trying to record?
