Default Playback Issue

@hilt_ctn
Thank you for the video clip - appreciated.

can you please confirm the following:

1. does this happen exactly at the same point every time? in other words if you repeat the same episode, the blank occurs at exact same point.

2. did you get the latest software downloaded yesterday morning i.e. was clip taken from the latest software?

Regards,

Hi MC

1 ) It usually does yes. But some times it " pushes through ". Let me explain. Usually you can fast-forward to just before the point where it dropped off, hit play and the same failure will occur ( 9/10 times ) in the same spot. Sometimes however you can do this same action, and play carries on almost with a slight hop ( some macro blocking onscreen ).

2 ) Yes it was done on the latest software

Happens to me too. I usually FFW to a few seconds after the point where it stops and pray for a continuation. Happens on a weekly basis.

I hear you Flojo. Happened about 10x last night during a Catch-Up title playback.

MC - Attached is what displays if you happen to have the status bar showing at the time of the stop.

For me this seems isolated to specific shows

1 ) Beauty and the Beast
2 ) True Blood
3 ) CSI Las Vegas
4 ) Cougar Town

Still doing this on L40. The lack of response is pathetic

Hi MC

1 ) There is no warning sign on affected recordings. All recordings are complete so no warnings appear. As a result if I press the "I" button, the regular program info appears

2 ) Yes. The durations are always listed as correct because the recordings are all complete

3 ) Signal strength is 98%. Signal quality is 100%
