Panasonic SS2000. If you stop a show without finishing it, there is a 50/50
chance it will be gone later. Anyone else seeing this? Any ideas?

If the unit accesses the Replay server (phone line) while a show is
paused, it won't restart it right. This will clear the buffer used
for watching live TV, but I never heard of it deleting a recorded
show.

Note that this doesn't seem to happen on the later Replays with
ethernet, but it does when the unit resets itself.

I assume you're talking about simply replaying a recorded show. Never
noticed any issue like this. In some situations, it puts up the "Press
Select to delete the show", but as long as you go somewhere else without
pressing Select, you can return to the show where you stopped it by do a
Play rather than Play from Beginning.
