Hi, since I bought the x9s player I have never been able to run the programming in the recording function. If I planned to record a channel from my satellite decoder, I can not find any files at the end of the disc. The only way to run it is to set up a programming that does not exceed 10 minutes of the current time. Between the decoder and the HDMI input I plugged in a splitter to eliminate HDCP protection, but I do not think the latter will cause problems. When I purchased the unit, the version of the firmware was 1.2.0, I kept it updated to the latest available version but the problem has always been presented. I also did a factory reset but the result has always been negative. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you Marcello.
