I just had my Comcast Triple Play installed about 1 week and a half ago. Everything has been working well and as it should. But now for some reason, anything I tape on the HD dvr seems to break up/pause/get pixelated and even the dvr takes longer to respond in terms of fastforwarding, etc. (it was working perfectly before)
Did something suddenly happen with my DVR? Why are recordings suddenly of a lower quality than before and why is it lagging when I try to rewind/fast forward, etc?
I am currently within my 30-day money back guarantee period, so I want to make sure I get this fixed or worked out before I pay my first bill and commit to the service.
Is there anyting I can do to fix or reset the box (is that the issue)? or is my box faulty? I dont *think* the cable connection is the issue, because shows are fine when I watch them live, but the issues are with the recordings.
You should at least try power cycling the box before taking it in. Just unplug the power cord to DVR, wait a minimum of 1 minute, and then plug it back in. Give it at least another 3-4 minutes before you turn on the box so it can do what it needs to in relation to being reset. After you've done all of that it will take some time to re-download the guide and menu system. Once you can see the program information of a channel record it and play it back to see if the problem has been fixed.
Heck I would even call first and see if a cs rep can fix it and if he/she can't have em send out a truck to make sure the installation tech did the job properly. Just make sure you aren't going to get charged for the truck roll. Plus why should YOU have spend gas money going to their office to "possibly" fix a problem with their equipment? You've got at least got 30 days for them to sort everything out properly and truck rolls happen pretty fast these days, at least in my area.
