Heh heh.  I know this sounds crazy, but it has happened enough times (and almost never in the converse) to be a coincidence...

I do a lot of OSD recording, and I've found that if I record something "around midnight", say, starting at 11:59 PM and going to 1:01 AM, the recording will (almost 100% of the time) be "broken".  And by "broken", I mean that, about half way through (say, around the 30 minute mark), the video freezes.  That is, when I play it back, the video freezes but the sound plays on.

It is very strange, and, as I said, it always seems to happen when the recording spans over midnight.

BTW, problem might not be the OSD, in fact.  It might be caused by the cable box, but this seems unlikely to me...

What recording options do you use? I have recorded a reasonable number of films off of The Horror Channel (you know the drill: cheerleaders, splatter, aliens, splatter, you name it - such epic masterpieces as "Snakes On A Train" and "Evil Aliens" [1]) which run from 11pm to 1am; and likewise from FilmFour (films of a better calibre [2]). I can't say I have noticed any specific issues with the recordings.

I typically record at 1200kbps video and 128kbps AAC audio; trading off lower picture quality for smaller filesize.
