Time Warner's DVR

We got a Time Warner HD DVR a few weeks ago - a Scientific Atlanta 8000, to be exact. If it worked, it'd be the best thing to happen to TV.

But recently, it seems like there's a 50/50 chance that touching any of the DVR buttons will generate a hard drive error that will require a full reboot - turn it off, unplug it, wait a minute, plug it back in, wait through the full boot process, etc.. We haven't lost any shows yet (as other people have reported), but it's pretty fucking sad when a cable box requires more attention and rebooting than a PC. For $80/month, you think they could supply me with a box that had at least seen a QA department ? Yeah, me too.

I'm not alone.
