    I attempted to record a one hour program a couple of nights ago. HR10, stock unit running 6.3D.
    The first 1 minute 57 seconds recorded OK and then stopped. And the last 47 minutes of the program also recorded OK - as a second program. So what happened to the middle 10 or 11 minutes?
    It was the middle of the night (2am) when recorded so maybe weather knocked out the signal for a few minutes - BUT - the end of the short section and the beginning of the long section don't contain any indications of rain fade, etc. They just stopped and started.
    Usually if I get rain fade you can see it break up and get a message and typically it will record right through the fade if it's short duration.
    The unit is only about 60% full - program I was attempting to record was SD.
    Any thoughts or is this just a glitch? Oh, BTW this unit is on a UPS and will ride through about 45 minutes of power outage.
    Thanks for any thoughts!

    PS I changed the software level to 6.3d - it was listed as 6.3b, which is incorrect.

    Sounds like a spontaneous reboot.

    Mine hasn't (knock on wood) experienced one for a while, but I used to get them quite often.
    Only a couple times during a recording, and the result would be the split recording with 7-10 minutes missing.

    Definitely a reboot, either on its own or possibly a power glitch.

    Hmm - as I said, it's on a UPS system and can run on it's own for about 45 minutes. . . it will just ride thru a glitch! And a reboot usually takes longer then the missing portion of the recording - about 8 min was missing. Thanks for the reply, however.
