722 weirdness, is it going bad?

Last night I was going to watch a movie at 9:25, and record Glee and Sullivan and Son. At 9:10, I decided to record the movie and start watching Glee. About 5 minutes into Glee, everything freezes up, and I get a complete signal loss message, and a total reboot.

I let it go on, and when done, started to watch Glee again. I fast forwarded to the place I was at, and it happened again. At that point I went to another T.V. and watched the rest of Glee on the 622. No problems.

Then I went ahead and watched the movie and Sullivan and Son, after deleteing all of the Glee recordings, and no problems.

So what happened, do I have bad sectors on the hard drive? Why would I get a complete signal loss message, when, clearly there was no signal loss at all.

Well, I'm more than ready to upgrade to the Hopper, but first I need it to have an antenna module, or otherwise I would need a service call twice.

It certainly sounds like a bad spot on the hard drive, it does happen. You may not have another problem with it unless you have filled up the hard drive.

Is this the first time this occurred? When a receiver is stuck in a process, it will automatically reboot after a certain amount of time if it can't complete the process.

I could be as garys stated that the program recorded on a bad sector of the HD. Please let me know if this occurs again. We may need to send a replacement receiver to you. Thanks.
