Roamio must be able to record reliably. see this thread for details: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=512448 Another issue that I am seeing that I have not seen mentioned yet. When I use FF to fly past commercials, it sometimes takes 30 seconds or more for the audio to get synced back to the video. I have been forced to back up 30 seconds to give the Roamio a chance to get back in sync when the program restarts. It doesn't happen every time, but when it does it is very frustrating. Basically, all I hear is a popping sound every 5 seconds or so until the audio comes back even though the video starts immediately. Note: I have used the 30 second skip option over the standard "fast scan" option. I have seen this behavior on 2 different Roamio's so I expect the audio glitch to be present in all roamio's. Is anybody else seeing this issue?
