    Got 6.3a while I was away on vacation for two weeks. I've watched about a half dozen OTA HD shows and haven't seen one that was short.

    However, I do have the audio dropout problem. And I don't have DD enabled, for recording or playback. I just use standard analog audio and have all the digital stuff disabled. :\

    I record quite a bit from my local PBS-HD station and have not had any recording cut out, for that matter, not with HD from Sat either.

    Last night my recording of Jericho ended after 36 minutes but I know what the issue was.

    The hard drive got full and it didn't automatically delete any recordings in order to clear space.

    I've had 6.3a for over a month and got my first shortened recording this week with HEROES on NBC OTA. Stopped at 45 minutes. Did not reboot (I did not lose my 30-second skip, that's how I know). First time it happened. No logical reason I record on DD. NOT ACCECPTABLE!!! I'm not happy. THey better fix this FAST!!!

    Okay, I think I understand now. You are saying 18:30 meaning 18 hours, 30 minutes, right? So the show you wanted is in the 17:30 to 18:30 section of the timebar, and you can not rewind back to 17:29 even if you try.

    Had 6.3a for about a month now, no shortened recordings. Getting a few, very faw, audio dropouts but no problems with the recordings.
