The first thing that comes to my mind is Ch. 13 (CW) is a likely a locally encoded analog channel whereas Fox Reality Channel is a national feed.
I'd like for you to see if this problem happens on all (or some) of your locally encoded channels.
Then I'd like to you pick some national channels and see if trick functions work ok on those channels.
Hi Lindend, thanks for all your posts on the Pace! They helped me in getting brave enough to give it a try...
I tested the FF thing and it happened on every "analog" (2-99) channel I tried (I didn't try them all, but I tried both "A" and "B" analogs). It happens on both tuners, and also on programs in the live buffer and recorded on the hard disk.
So far I have not seen this happen in any of the digital channels (100+)...
The good news is that the FF/BF works in moving the "tape", and the "counter" is accurately updated. The only issue is that the picture is frozen during FF/BF. When I return to playback, playback resumes at the new position...
It's obviously an issue when you are trying to locate something specific in a program. For example if you record a 3-hour show to watch an interview with a specific guest or a musical performance or something like that. A combination of the Skip button/macros can help, but given the $1/mo price I can't complain :-)
