So, my ancient copy of Leadtek’s Winfast PVR2 usually works fine, then one day it decides it’s going to split recordings at 1.99GB no matter what you ask it to do.
Reading some ancient forum posts, someone else mentioned that it will do this if it thinks it might be on a FAT16 (or FAT32?) drive. It isn’t in my case, but still it’s been known randomly to switch into this state of mind.
The solution is unknown, but switching to another physical drive seems to resolve it.
This is a fairly cheap unit at $129 – does the job but even on low it is quite loud compared to units such as the “Mi Air Purifier”. Had they given it a ‘quiet; setting it would be better in my opinion.
When I bought it there was zero information on the Internet about it, but now the manual has shown up at http://www.stirlingappliances.com.au/LiteratureRetrieve.aspx?ID=195680
Still no idea where to get replacement filters – but really there isn’t much complexity to this product and you can probably make your own.
