Well it happened to me again this weekend... and I am not sure what the root cause of the problem is.
Watching a movie that I had started recording part way through the previous evening. So part of the movie had come from the LOD, the rest was recorded live. It all showed up on my pvr as one continuous recording.
However I noticed that as I ff'd through the commercial breaks, that the on-screen display that indicates how far you are into the movie, how much remaining etc (progress meter?), did NOT come up on the screen. I could not bring it up at all.
At the end of the movie, as soon as I hit 'stop' the on-air program shrank to top left corner. The remainder of the screen remained black.
When I would hit 'exit', the screen would return to normal size, but none of the other buttons would work. I could not change channels. Hitting 'guide" only resulted in the on-air picture shrinking to the upper left corner again.
Of course a front panel reset fixed everything. I was just hoping that there was a more civilized way of recovering from this sort of fault.
I have posted this before... but I didn't get any response as to whether anyone else has experienced this, and if there is another way to get back to normal.
Although similar to the regular channel/High Def screen shrinkage that has been reported many times, this one is different in that changing the channel does not help or even work. And both the movie and the current tv channel were from the same source.
