Hi all, I have the 8300 HD. sometimes when I record something, it splits the recording into two files. for example I recorded a show last week from 8:30 to 9. this is a programmed recording set to record every week. when I went to watch the recording, there were two seperate recordings, 1 from 8:30 to 8:35 and one from 8:35 to 9pm. does this happen to other people? why does this happen?

I have seen it on rare occasions. IIRC, something caused an interuption in the recording, so it gets saved as multiple files.

Check your signal strength and S/N ratio - often a poor signal can cause a split recording. A power outage/blip can do it too if you don't have a UPS, but then there's usually a couple of minutes missing while the PVR reboots.

Sometimes if a simsub takes place at that time, if you're recording a US channel, then that could do it also.
