I've been having issues with my recordings of the olympics. In the guide, it just has these huge blocks of time (sometimes 8 -10 hours long) that it treats as a single show. What I'm seeing is that when I get about 5 or 6 hours in to these files, the video starts stuttering and has long pauses. Usually stopping and restarting playback fixes it for a couple of minutes then it starts again.
The files are recorded on a WD black 1TB hard drive, so I don't think drive speed should be the issue here. It seems like Media Center is just having issues with these huge files (some are > 50 GB each).
I was just wondering if any one else had seen this and whether you'd found a solution. How are you recording the olympics? I guess it could just put in manual recordings to break up the big blocks. Is there a master schedule somewhere of what exactly is on when? It would be nice to be able to record more selectively.
Edit: Well, I found the more detailed schedule on NBC's web site, so I guess manual recordings will work for me. If anyone has tried other things that work, I'd still like to hear about them
