I've had this unit for about 2 months and really enjoy the difference to normal telly. I recently had a bit of an issue though and wondered if anyone else had the same?

The words disc error flashed up on the tv and the unit started to intermittently freeze when attempting to record or playback.

Having factory reset and reinstalled latest 3.12 firmware under rescue mode it appears to be functioning normally.  I did the hard disk check and it reported everything was normal.

I have however noticed a small red circle with a red triangle inside (similar to the normal 'play' arrow) on the front panel display immediately to the right of (and the same size as) the 'recording' and 'schedule recording' indicators.  It appears after startup and a few seconds after each channel change and stays on.  I can't remember seeing it before and can't find anything in the owners guide???

Also whilst watching TV3 there is a slight hesitation in sound every 30-50 seconds whilst outputting sound as dolby digital over HDMI.  I have the unit connected to an Onky receiver amp via hdmi, the amp is working normally.

Any comments appreciated.

The front panel small red circle with a red triangle inside, indicates the unit is in auto timeshift mode. It automatically buffers (records) the current watching TV channel, so that you can always "rewind" live TV, using green "<-" key or the skip backward key to watch passed content. You can disable this function in Settings->Timeshift Setup.
