I recently was sent an HR44 as a replacement for my terribly slow HR34. Have been very pleased for the most part, but recently I've been getting small glitches during recorded programs. The screen will freeze, sometimes the picture will "pixellate", then jump forward maybe 2 - 5 seconds. This happens multiple times during the recordings. This only happens on a recorded program. It does not happen when watching a program live. Curious if anyone has seen anything similar. Always great information on this site. I have found it very helpful.
