I had the same problem and almost every I recorded had audio sync problems.I had no problems recording to DVD. It also took a long time to boot and wouldn't finish booting and rebooted over and over again, I had to unplug it to get to boot again.icu_nxtime said:When I set timer record sometimes it will record only for 4 min 11 sec sometimes for 41 min 11 sec. I see a pattern here !!! Then the unit just ends the recording and I don't get the whole show?
Anyone else have a similar issue. I suspect hard drive sectors but not sure. I would like to do a factory restore but don't know if it will format the HD or not when it does it.
I read in another forum where someone replaced the Western Digital HD to fix the audio sync problem. My hard drive was about about 80% full so I started to delete and dub things I recorded to DVD. After I deleted some stuff everything started to work fine again, no more 4:11 recordings and audio sync problems. I was going to replace the hard drive but now after I get everything I wanted to save on DVD, I'll reformat the hard drive.
My guess is that my hard drive was badly fragmented and there is deframentation option in set up.
