DVR (QIP7232-P2) Records Shows but Won't Play 1/3 of Them Back

Looking for assistance with our DVR.

For the last few weeks, about 1 in 3 shows that have been recorded will fail to play back. When you hit Play, the screen temporarily goes black, as if the show is about to play, or the screen remains on live television and never even tries to load the recorded show. You can see the total time of the recorded show but the show simply will not play back.

Last night, when it happened, we rebooted the machine twice with no change. It has occurred under varying circumstances (time of day, program recorded, channel, different % empty space, length of show, HD and standard).

It's very annoying to have to log into a third-party service to see the show we wanted to record. I mean, we don't watch *that* much tv and it sucks to try to follow a show only to miss an episode and have no idea what's going on. 

  • The type is QIP7232-P2.
  • This is a single room unit (not multi-room).
  • Yes, I am subscribed to the channels in question.
  • No, I can't record it again because it isn't airing again before the next episode airs. 
  • Yes, I tried to call and got looped through an endless stream of automated suggestions that did not come close to resolving the issue. Then my phone battery died.

While looking for the answer online later, VZ steered me toward the FIOS app, only to tell me that they want me to upgrade to Quantum. It looks like a lot of VZ customers suffer from this with little assistance from VZ. It's funny to me that this is happening more and more - while we continue to pay the bill - and they heavily market upgrades to other services. Does anyone have any advice on getting the DVR to play back shows with some consistency?
