mixed luck yesterday

Yesterday a Giants baseball game failed to record - this may be a foul-up with Comcast Sports Net. With the Sharks playoffs, "versus" and Comcast Sports are fighting over the Sharks games and making a lot of last minute changes to their schedules - too last minute for DirecTV and the result is the DVR doesn't know when the shows are on.

The HR21 DVR did record the Sharks playoff game in Hi-def, but the recording was horrible. It would play for a moment, then pixelate and freeze for several seconds. This continued for the whole 4 hour recording. Hi-def for 10 seconds, garbage for 5 seconds, is not exactly an improvement over old-fashioned SD TV.
