WMC pause/resume skipping ahead

Post by ggehin » Sun Jun 16, 2019 1:29 pm

My Windows 7 media center picture and sound will skip ahead several frames after pausing and resuming. Also when starting a recording the there is a couple second delay before it starts playing. I think it may be the hard drive.

Have you tried pointing the recording storage to a different drive?

The drive is only used for the DVR storage. The drive is a WD 1.0TB sata / 64 MB. WD10EZEX date of Jun 17 2014 Free space is 391GB and a scan showed no problems and no bad sectors. The operating system is on a Samsung sad 850 evo 500g data with 375 gb free space.

OK, but if you think it's the hard drive, the first thing to do is to try another hard drive.
