Advertisements I agree with your logic. Unfortunately my S3 doesn't seem to. I guess it operates in the realm of Mythos, not Logos. I've witnessed 2 episodes of frozen video after turning on TV since the morning of the 20th. Each time the HDMI cable was completely disconnected, as was antenna. first - No programmed recording. Frozen screen. Had enough time to disconnect cable coax. S3 rebooted within a minute. Both tuners tuned to previously frozen channel upon reboot. second (today) - Single 8 hour programmed recording. Turned on TV 5 hours 12 minutes into it. Frozen screen. Did nothing for 5 minutes. Then pressed play button. Indicated time at end of recording run was 5 hrs 12 mins elapsed - TV power up time, not 5 hrs 17 mins - actual ET. S3 then rebooted within a minute. Both tuners upon reboot were tuned to channel which had been recording and frozen. I'll check this recording later. In 312 minute period, what are the odds against checking in just as a frozen video occurs, without there being a triggering event? Disconnecting coax or hitting play button may have triggered the reboot, but not the frozen screen as it had already happened. I'll continue to monitor this as I'm recording in 8 + 2 hour blocks all week. Will detach CV cables at some point and just check with S video, or do nothing.
