Sounds like the problem I have, it happens on a semi-regular basis to me.
How many issues do you think it has? You're average PC costs more and has more issues. In this particular case this problem seems to be sufficiently rare that its off D*'s radar, and probably wouldn't have been picked up even if they had done a real beta test. (Unless they gave one to me that is.)Originally posted by spinn74
Anyone else ever pay $1000 for a product with this many issues? Isn't this what beta testing is for?
The erroneous guide data message wasn't actually causing anyone any problems, apart from existing and confusing (and annoying) people. They fixed that one inside a few months. The channels not available problem prevents basic operation of the unit (mine missed 2 weeks of recordings while I was on vacation).Originally posted by dr_mal
It would be nice, but from other problems (erroneous guide data message anyone?), it seems that D*'s user-reported bug tracking leaves a lot to be desired. I have a feeling if I called about this problem every day for the next year, I'd get a different rep every time that told me they'd never heard of the problem, and I needed to clear my program data, and that would fix it.
