We have just purchased the Thomson DHD4000 and it seems pretty good. Recording from the program guide worked fine so no problems there, but when I just want to press record, why does it not work how it should? Tapping REC does not work. Holding the button down doesn't always work. Holding the button down and waving it around does work after a few seconds! I know that the box is receving the signal due to the led flashing so what's up with that? Then when it IS recording I can't get it to stop. The STOP button doesn't work. The only way to finish recording is to go into the Record List and remove the entry which seems a little cumbersome. And as far as I can tell it will stop recording at the end of that particluar program. Is there any way to make it record non-stop until manually stopping it?
