 I've RMA'd a few of my hdpvrs.. the first 2 times were b/c the unit
wouldn't work at all (I was in the 1st 100 orders or so)... the last time
was because I had intermittant issues with the component passthrough
flickering; that time I have to go back and forth with support quite a bit
but they did authorize a RMA.
Anyway some info about my setup in case it's helpful.. I'm still running .21
(this thread is one of the reasons I'm holding off) with the .21 hdpvr
patches.  Record from a directv hd receiver.  Probably record 3 or 4 shows a
week including at least 2 football games, have never had a bad recording.
Gentoo linux with a vanilla kernel on an asus m3a.  Good luck!
