R15/500 DVR recored shows blacking out?

We have a R-15/500, and lately when we watch a recorded show, towards the end, the video blacks out, but the audio is still playing. Any ideas? :smileyconfused:

First thing to try is resetting the DVR using the red button behind the front panel access card door.

If the reset doesn't help, then I think you'll need to replace the DVR. There were posts like this several months ago with this problem, you might try searching here, but I think the only sure fire fix was DVR replacement.  Keep us posted.
