Well my 8000HD recorded it just fine, off the HD TMN channel. And I programmed it about a week ago (using the all episodes in this time-slot option). But I haven't had any of these recordings drop that I've heard about lately.nathan said:I could be wrong, but as far as I know, functionally, they should be almost identical now (with all the little 'issues' intact between them, such as the one you mentioned). However, the 8300 is *MUCH* faster, and more responsive than the 8000. It pains me to use an 8000 after using an 8300 for so long.
Though for stuff that is only on once a week, I almost always record a second copy in a different time-slot just in case (mostly if there is a power failure or something the first time it is on).
And I find the 8000HD speed just fine ... I'm sure if one got used to a faster unit, then one might think it is slow ... but it is nothing compared to when that horrid Wink application was running!
