And So It Begins...
Thursday: Five missed recordings. One was rescheduled at a later time on the west coast channel. It showed up as scheduled in the guide but didn't fire.
Friday: 1:00 AM and 1:30 AM. Two 30 minute recordings start and don't stop. These were two back to back shows on the same channel. Even worse, the show was deleted from the recording schedule several days earlier. They fired anyway. I noticed it that evening when I couldn't change channels. Two recording were taking place simultaneously when nothing was scheduled. Couldn't stop them, couldn't delete them, 630 was unresponsive. Time to do a soft reboot.
After the reboot: Two 0:00 shows in the recordings list. Deleted one, got 30% of the drive capacity back. Deleted the other and got another 30%. This also resulted in a loss of about 20 hours of recorded shows, that's on top of the 5 hours that didn't record. Thanks Shaw. I haven't experienced this type of crap since 5 years ago when the 9200 was first released. Canada's most advanced PVR?! I don't think so. Canada's most buggy PVR? Most definitely. I feel ripped off.
At 20 I had a good mind. At 40 I had money. At 60 I've lost my mind and my money. Oh, to be 20 again. --Scary
