I have many TV Shows set to series record. Various shows, on various channels will "record" but when you go to play them back all you get is black screen. For example I record Jeopardy, in a week 3 of 5 episodes may work when you try to play them back.
This will happen on a range of channels and at all different times, most notably last night A&E-HD, recordings of both Bates Motel and Damien did not work. I see and hear nothing. If I try to skip forward it will go straight to the "end" and the display menu prompting you to erase or keep the episode will appear.
