SA8300HD DVR Let Down

Well, last night my SA8300HD DVR let me down. :..(

Whenever possible, I've been double recording....especially the shows that I really do want to watch in HD.

Double recording in that inaddition to have the SA8300HD DVR record the show, I also recorded the downconverted HD from OTA HDTV onto a ReplayTV. Though ABC and FOX had priority for getting scheduled into my ReplayTV, because these aren't available by cable (darn Sinclair Broadcast, forcing the public to use other means to get those shows if they get missed....now I'd get a Video iPod if it did 16:9....)

Well, last night there were shows on FOX/ABC that I couldn't do double recording....well, normally there isn't, but there was a movie on FOX last night....so I opted to record that instead of my regular shows.

The SA8300HD DVR decided to lock up and reboot during the recording of a couple of shows last night....so now I don't have these shows from HD, even though the shows were from CBS and NBC....I could probably have rationalized watching what it had recorded if the crash had been at or near the start or perhaps in the middle. But the it lopped of the ends of the shows. It may as well not have recorded it at all if it was going to do that to me.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
