Ninja stopped recording

Hi folks. So I was recording the Program out from my switcher on a long form event this weekend and the Ninja stopped recording twice without any warning.

The hard drive IS one of the recommended HDDs listed on the website, the HDD was formatted in the Ninja to clear it prior to recording and the connection was via HDMI (720P60) in a studio environment with the unit stable on a desk.

Anyone else have issues with recording stoppages?

If this is commonplace, I'll be looking at a different solution. Thankfully this was a "shakedown cruise" and the recording wasn't critical.

Anyone with a Samurai having issues? Is it the HDMI connection not being a locking connection that is the issue?

What drive were you using before as a matter of interest?

Re: Ninja stopped recording

i got 3 SSD (OCZ) dying in a row, so performance does not always match with endurance.

Re: Ninja stopped recording

I shot six dance recital programs over the weekend using Ninja 2. Hard drive was a WD Scorpio Black 500GB. I recorded three 2.5-hour shows each day without issue. Was shooting from the lighting booth where there was no air circulation, very warm up there, and the aluminum housing of Ninja 2 got pretty hot to the touch, but unit performed just perfectly both days.

My camera was a Sony HDV outputting 1080i - Ninja 2 saved me from needing 18 HDV tapes, and better yet, saved me the CAPTURE TIME to ingest all those tapes!!

Thanks
