I truly thought my DVR+ 'number-one' had given up in anticipation of today's Stream+ expected delivery. Postman's come and gone w/no package, 'track' says "by 8 PM").
Never acted like this before (BTW a Cold Boot fixed it), playback and action from remote would freeze as the panel LED went out. For quite a while just a press of the [ON] of the remote restored the red LED (it was recording) until it wouldn't and recording progress according to [DVR] appeared uninterrupted.
Waiting past end of programs recording and then a 'Cold Boot' (power disconnection) restored normal operation (been a long time since cold booting, it's on a UPS). Playback of those recordings that showed "0:59:58" would end at 0:44:33 or so as they must have had interruption at the point where [ON] button failed to resume LED and function.
While playing with standby/on buttons of my other two DVR+'s, I've noticed their buttons move when you press them with an audible "click" and tactile feel of this click
My original (33 months old now) DVR+ never had any movement, tactile feel or click in response of pressing its on/standby button.
Action of control was normal, including a 'warm' boot if you held it pressed for a few seconds.
That "<$10 wristwatch" I spoke of was a corporate "customer giveaway" from thirty years ago. I leave it constantly (never reset its time) on EDT and up until it's battery replacement time (several years) it's always accurate within a few seconds. I can mentally subtract that 'winter' hour). I enjoy wearing it for its small size, tomato logo, gold color
and 'alligator' band.
I have two (gifts) of those "atomic" wall/shelf clocks that seek that WWV time signal between midnight and six AM (of their clock). It's a long way from Colorado to S. Florida and I've found just one single location within my home that delivers a reliable reception of WWV. I also have a CASIO "WATER 200M RESIST" (about $69 ten+ years ago) which I will usually select when I need to wear a wristwatch.
It not only has a permanent solar charged battery sealed within, but the WWV's automatic time-set. I put it on my WWV shelf twice a year (DST/ST Sunday mornings) and it will usually gain 10-30 seconds between those events. Prior to my retirement, when flying around the country, it would get a time-set in almost any location, every night.
