Ever since version 3.07, I have been getting lots of bad recordings, Error 04 and Error 05, corrupted files. Is anyone else getting these errors. Last night I had to delete almost half of my recordings.

Yes, but I have never had any of these until recently. Did something change?

I also never saw this error with Hopper w/Sling.

I had that happen with my old Hopper and it was the hard drive going bad. That is what resulted in my getting a Hopper 3 (which seems like a mistake!)

I had one last night for Street Outlaws, I guess I'll need to wait until next week to record the episode I am missing. Overall I like Hopper 3

I am getting a lot of these errors where I can't open the Hopper 3 programs that I record, I just have to delete them. Should I call Dish to get a replacement Hopper 3 or do you think it will be fixed with the next firmware version?

I have also had this problem. On one of three I got error code 05, the other two (while scheduled for a 60 minute show) listed the recording with the same start and stop times... thus blank. The tech suggested a link between single and recurring timers. I tried single vs. recurring last night and the temporary fix worked

UPDATE: The second time I used the single event type recording on the same show, next night, it did NOT record. Start and stop time was the same, 7:59 PM.

I called up yesterday to get a replacement H3, but the customer service rep said that it is a known software problem and the engineers are working on it. She said that they can't send out new hardware for a software problem like this.

Interestingly, all my new recordings worked today, when they all failed yesterday. Maybe this is progress, or maybe just luck.

I've gotten several since 308
Seems like I'm losing recordings every day.... and the number of problems keeps growing. We can't seem to "just watch TV" any longer as some have been fortunate enough to. And so far I've been unsuccessful with trying to get a new box.

I have not had 1 timer to fire since Thursday night. PTAT timers are ok but not one show from single or reoccuring. I have done both reset and plug boots. In the schedule it shows it as having been recorded.

I'm not getting them on a regular basis, but I am getting them enough to make me check recordings for them so I can schedule another recording if possible.
