I have LOD on and multiple timers per day. No issues with playback etc.
My experience exactly. We've had 2 reboots (front panel) since CC and I still have 5 hours of HD recordings from BC on the hard drive. We set 2-5 timers a day and now have recorded and played 3 HD movies from ch 283 since we signed up for the MCHD freebie preview. Not a glitch yet with them.
My situation exactly! By doing a series of power unplugs/plug-ins and front panel resets over a period of an hour or so, I got mine to reboot. I called tech support and they offerred to replace my unit, which I agreed to. It took about 10 days. During that time, the machine was very unstable with live programming. A simple change of channel would require a front panel reset. Strangely enough, recorded materials played fine.It gave us a chance to watch some of the HD movies we had recorded with the MCHD promo. The new machine is working fine so far, with only 1 reset in the 2 weeks or so that we've had it. *choice also gave me another month of the movie package as I didn't get to watch all of the recordings on my HD. I did have to pay for return shipping though for the old unit.I'm pretty sure I know the likely diagnosis, but just to confirm with the experts here...
Last night the 530 stopped responding to commands while I was watching TV. I could still see the channel I was on, but couldn't bring up the guide, change channels, etc. I left it alone because I was DVRing something in the background.
This morning, still locked, so I did a front panel reset. Powered down and now seems to hang on boot up. The blue lights start cycling and then just stop. It never gets any further and no display on the TV. Same story when I unplug the unit.
Is there anything that can be done, or is it finally time to send my beloved machine to calculator heaven?
How long does it normally take for SC to ship out a replacement machine?
