      Bad recordings and viewing

      Hi,

      Sometimes when i record a channel and watch another the channel i watch starts to jump and skip and the lip sync goes belly up, also everytime i record Eurosport you just cant watch it back the picture jumps every 3 seconds. Anybody else had this problem.

      Have you tried turning the box off for a few minutes then allowing it to re-boot? I had a one off experience of this behaviour and solved it with a re-boot.

      Try a Planner Rebuild. Press Services, 4, 0, 1, & Select. I think it's Option 7 on the menu.
      Panasonic TX-P50G10B, Onkyo HTS 3305, Sky+HD Thomson 4E3007 (with upgraded PSU & WD5000AVDS HDD),

      A planner rebuild does not delete any recordings, I have done this myself.

      Re: Bad recordings and viewing

      Hi again,

      tried the re-build but still having really bad recordings, i wonder if its a HDD problem. The system is 4 1/2 years old and i know that HDD dont last that long, i might replace with a larger unit and try again.
