Skip-ahead glitch on 867
My Magnavox 867H (bought new Aug. 2017) has developed a frustrating glitch with its skip-ahead function (the double-triangle+bar button to the right of the red Pause TV button).
When trying to skip ahead, the recorder jumps the appropriate interval, then pauses for a second or two, and dumps out of the recording and back to the titles screen. When playback resumes, it's at the beginning of the title.
Changing the skip interval doesn't change the behavior. It's present in playback on both on the internal drive (HDD) and the external drive (SSD, which I added just to check whether this was a problem with the original HDD).
Neither does it matter whether I use the original remote or my Logitech 650 programmable, the commands for which are delivered from Logitech, and not programmed remote-to-remote.
The 867's software reports itself as up-to-date (v. 1.00.15), and automatic updating via wifi is turned on. I can't tell when that update was applied — but because the skip-ahead problem appeared in just the last few weeks, I wonder whether an update may have introduced a problem with how that command is handled in the device.
Any evidence pro or con is welcome, as well as all suggestions about other possible sources for the glitch. Thanks much ...
