Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed that it will record ok, but some of the recordings are unwatchable (lots of pixelization, almost 0 sized recordings). Needless to say this is causing the WAF to plummet! Last night I ran the HDHR GUI to see what the signal strengths are, and it saw the tuners, but didn't find any channels. I can ping it, but nothing else seems to work. When I tried to record something with it, the tuner lights didn't even come on so I think it's dead.

Have you verified that the power supply isn't one of the faulty ones
that were included with some of the early HDHR's? I don't have the
details handy, but google should be able to find it. The symptoms
sound exactly like that issue.
