Hi Dr. Dave,
I don't have any CFs and my tv is a new Panasonic Viera plasma.
When I'm watching a recorded tv series program, the 'Summary' menu displays:
When I'm watching live tv, the menu displays:
This happens when the remote is on the coffee table or when I'm in another room nowhere close to the remote or the tv! It's a mystery to me and apparently to Bell as well. And to be honest, I don't watch the 2 other tvs regularly so I can't say for sure if it happens on them. I guess I should make a point of testing them.
Yesterday it happened at 5:38 pm almost 10 minutes into the recording, at 7:50 pm, 10 minutes into another recording and then at 9:08 pm, 9 minutes into the 3rd recording. It seems to pop up typically anywhere from 9 to 13 minutes into the recording/live program. Once it pops up it doesn't happen again during that particular recording/live program. Also when the menu pops up the program continues in the background, it doesn't stop playing.
I'm getting really frustrated with this because the cables have been changed as has the VIP1232 pvr. Only the modem and 2 receivers haven't been replaced. Do I ask a Bell tech to sit and watch tv with me until it happens?? I never no when it's going to happen.
Sorry to whinge so much!
