Not exactly but somewhat similar.
There are so many issues its really hard to keep track. Especially as Rogers does not seem to care to acknowledge any of them or share any plans to fix them. Might make for a good FAQ, ie known issues.
We did not experience your particular issue, but we had two issues in the last two days.
1) when watching live tv, HD channel 518 I think, the video/audio simply froze (still image, no audio), then restated, then froze again, etc. As nothing was being recorded, we simply missed the show, and watch something else. Wonderful. Hard to pintpoint that one. I did recheck the signal strenfth ; it was fine at -5. Regardless, as there are issues with live and recorded content, this entire service is indeed a POS ( aka polished turd as someone noted earlier).
2) on the last recording we did (the movie Bridesmaids), it played back fine, for about an hour, then the audio crapped out (garbled). The 8642 is connected via both HDMI (where we listen via TV) and digital audio (where at time we listen via AVR). We muted the TV audio and played the audio via the AVR and it was perfect. Is there a known HDMI audio issue on the 8642??
