Twice now I've been watching a sports event which I've been recording. I left the rest of the game to watch later, turning the TV off. When I returned to watch the recording of the game, it's not there.

The PVR history has an entry for the program saying "this program was not recorded because of a fatal hardware error."

Yet I had been watching it. Sunday it was the NFL playoff game on Fox. On Jan 4 it was a hockey game on TSN.

I'm using an external hard drive.

Has anyone else encountered this type of error?

Funny you should mention that I received the same error last night.
I have a series recording for Leverage and Hawaii 5-0 and both of them failed to engage last night. Luckily I was home and noticed it right away. I was able to press the record button on each and they recorded and played back fine as did other recordings before and after the fatal error.
No idea what could have caused it but the Cable and TV was working fine the whole time so there were no power outages or loss of signal.
