Bizarre Recording Issues

Hi everybody. I ran into two recording problems with Joey 2. The tv that I use daily is connected to Joey 2.

I record a half an hour soccer show on channel 392 (Bein) named The Xtra at 7 pm. Whatever the reason is Friday's recording broke into 3 segments!! 18 minutes, 5 minutes and 10 minutes (the last one included 3 extra minutes since it is a default). All were saved in the same "The Extra" folder. I watched all 3 and deleted. Yes, it is not a game changer. But, I wonder why this happened. Exactly same thing with Stephen Colbert show happened several months ago. That show had 4 parts! Is there a software glitch?

The second issue is with an episode deleting itself. I selected "Record series" for 8 episode show "Genius" on NTGEO. All were recorded. I confirmed it. All of a sudden episode 4 is gone! I am hoping National Geographic channel will broadcast the series again. Again, software bug?

Thanks if you take your time to read and answer.

This can happen if the channel goes "offline" due to weather interference. Was there a storm that day?

Thanks Rick. You r an early riser, too.

I live in Georgetown, KY. in the sticks. Well, it has been cloudy here lately. It rained very little. no storm, nothing major. Just like I said, it happens rarely. On a stormy day, the recording doesn't stop. it is just unplayable.

Should have said unwatchable. it plays. but you know there is a weather related issue. The screen shows there is a signal loss.

Most of the time it will say unplayable. Sometimes it will split. But also could be a power interruption? That definitely causes a split recording.

I think you have a point there. Whenever there is a power issue, my range in the kitchen shows "PF" on its display. I am assuming pf stands for "power failure". My electricity is provided by a rural coop.

Shouldn't there be missing seconds or minutes when the power is lost? Hopper 3 does not have a backup power. When I watched those 3 parts, everything seemed normal.

Yes, if there was a power interruption, you should be missing a few minutes. Maybe Hopper going bad. Perhaps PM a rep here (name in orange) about getting it replaced.
