Hello everyone,

I really like my 442 but the biggest complaint I have with it is that I am not able to record more than 30 minutes at a time.

Can I adjust this somehow?  It's got plenty of hard drive space left, and I let it warm up for a few minutes before I start to record.  During recording time the device does not even get hot, kind of lukewarm, but it just stops after 30 minutes of recording.  I'm a bit puzzled.  I do leave it running on on the power adaptor to avoid running out of power during the process - I'm not trying for a marathon here either, just an hour, just a show, commercials and all.  It couldn't be the filesystem on the drive itself, even FAT32 supports a maximum size of 4GB per file.  These files don't even come close to that.

Thoughts?

My thanks

Okay, when you go into PVR mode, press the menu button, you will get some options.  If you scroll down to Rec Time, thats the timer.  You can go anywhere from 30 minutes to 4 hours.

Well... now I feel like a goof!  Such a simple solution.  Thank you so very much for your help and time.
