I don't see anything of interest in the prime's log and the signal
strength seems good.  Yes, the recordings are being correctly detected
as damaged (thanks for that thought... changing to a theme which shows
the damaged status makes it easier to get an idea of how widespread
this issue is).  It turns out it is not all recordings... it is maybe
1/3 of them.  More interesting is that it occurs in chunks.  Last
night every recording from about 7pm to 10pm was damaged but none of
the others throughout the day were.  I'm not sure what to make of that
other than myth is purposefully damaging the "important" recordings?
