THDVR - sucks

Every time we try to play something we recorded and use the fast forward, the recording just locks up and you have to reboot the system.  Has anyone encountered this?

 

Also the picture freezes on several tvs at different times for no reason.  Left alone it will return in about 5 minutes.

Sorry for the delayed reponse guys, been pretty busy lately.  Sooooo...........  I was able to connect my DVR and one of my STB using Cat5e, and the other STB is still using coax.  I just did this yesterday and the STB that has Cat5 seems to be working just fine with THDVR.  I haven't had a chance to test the other TV yet, as that is where the kid sleeps and he is usually in bed when my stuttering happens.  Gonna try it tomorrow before he goes to bed, but hopefully I've figured out my problem.  Well, found another way around it!

So I tried my other TV that is still connected with Coax.  It seems to be working.  I'm gonna try for a few more days, but I'm wondering if the coax connection between the RG and the DVR is what was causing the problem.

That has a lot to do with 90% of the issues with THDVR, glad to see you are getting things straightened out, sorry that it took you to fix it instead of a Premise Tech

Re: THDVR - sucks

Well after removing the coax connection between RG and DVR and running it as cat 5 it has cleared up my problem.  My other two STB are run via coax and I have no more stuttering issues.  I'm not sure where the problem is at in the line as everything including the wall plates have compressed fittings but now everything seems to be working.  Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and help I appreciate it.

I installed a new splitter i bummed off a tech passing thru the area while i was out  today.. (had a few days got round to it )

The spliiter that was removed was original and red with a "130db isolation "..

Now as u can see i have no more 96 showing and the signal to noise is better....

With the 96 showing i knew if it hiccuped to 80 it would fail and casue a glitch...

With all 112 i feel like its better equipped to handle a hiccup or 2  :smileyhappy:

The new splitter is labeled ghpna ??  dunno why but it does a better job...

I didnt really notice many problems but on some occassion it would flutter (not sure the recording was captured that way or not )

 

so its just a  fwiw post :smileyhappy:

randyl,

 

That's the 1500 MHz splitter I was talking about to you

 

It's made specifically for HPNA which is how data is transferred through COAX on U-Verse

Re: THDVR - sucks

The only problem I have is when I try to watch something recorded in HD on a SD TV through THDVR.  When I watch a show recorded in SD on a SD TV it plays just fine.
