Incorrect "About" Usage

I upgraded to the Odyssey 7Q+ though the loyalty program and used the new recorder for the first time on a shoot the other day. After the shoot I opened the "About" screen and noticed that it showed that the unit had been powered for 3 days and 2 hours and Recorded for 23 hours. The shoot was a 12 hour day (the unit was not on the whole time) and we recorded a little over and hour and half of footage.

Has anyone else notice that the Powered/Record information is totally incorrect? Why have this information if it's not accurate?

As a side note - I looked at my old Odyssey 7Q and see that it shows Powered: 9 days 6 hrs/Record: 1 day 21 hrs. I haven't used this unit that much either so I don't think it's a 7Q+ issue.

Re: Incorrect "About" Usage

I remember Mitch Gross answering this on another forum. This is due to CD testing each unit for 24h before sending them of.
