I tried to record a couple of programs tonight with a 1GB memory stick. The recordings started out looking good but after a couple of minutes the recordings were extremely choppy. The thumbdrive is formatted FAT32. The video is bad when playing back on my PC also. Could it be a defective thumbdrive? The first program was a 1 hour program that I set with a timer and the second one I used the RECORD button on the remote. Whe I used the RECORD button on the remote, I watched the video as it was being recorded and the video looked good but the playback sucked. BTW, the Azbox rebooted when trying to use the RECORD button on the remote to start/stop the recording. Firmware 3877.
