Major trouble with recordings

Lawrence Calhoun

Recommended Posts

There is so much to love about my brand new U5. But 60% of my recordings are failing. Everything from media format issues to the recording being listed but actually not there. I never had any recording failures with XRS4500. It's getting so frustrating i sometimes feel like going back to the 4500. Has anyone else had these issues? Can anyone offer some advice.

First of all, I strongly recommend using and SSD over a mechanical drive.  Secondly, I recommend formatting the drive externally on a PC, and making sure to use the exFAT filesystem format (FAT32 which is the default on android boxes and old windows machines, has a file size limitation of 2GB, using exFAT, you don't have this limit).

Then you have the usual, make sure that under PVR settings you have the destination location selected.   

Now if you streams glitch, this can stop the recording.  The PVR function will typically not try to recover if the stream stops.


What firmware and buzztv version are you running ?  You can find it on the Updates screen.
