occasional corrupt recording

I get occasional corrupt recordings and wonder if it may be due to a fault with my aerial as it happens to either HDR I feed from the one aerial.
It usually allows me to playback a corrupt recording. The HDR doesn't show a thumbnail - but this corrupt thumbnail image instead. Video_Failed_New.pngI get a warning message when I try to play the recording - 'Recording failed:loss of power. Do you want to play this file?' . This message only appears on the first playback attempt. It often behaves fine after that - which suggest the fault was not fatal. As I can playback the recording I'm not too worried - ie in these cases it's a minor occasional fault.

But, a recent one was a genuine failed recording. It stopped halfway through - NCIS: Los Angeles (35 - Pick) Fri Nov 19 20:00:03 2021 GMT. I wonder if anyone else recorded that last Friday. If so, did it complete ok without issue? (Also WebIF/browse/Media Details shows it as Scrambled/Unknown.)
So is it likely to be an aerial fault or an issue with the HDR?

Oh it looks like that HDR had crashed - so that should explain it
Code:
Humax crashed at Fri Nov 19 20:23:57 UTC 2021 - Uptime: 51760

IIRC loss of signal has its own fault code, separate from loss of power. Yes, they only alert the user on first attempt to play.

I thought I read in this forum that a crash erases some crash logs. Misunderstood.

Does the number after uptime mean anything? what?

Not all fatal problems cause a crash.log entry

Some logs like webif-error.log are overwritten by reboot

Seconds since boot time

Just to comment that I was worried that I had aerial issue. This was because both HDRs had corrupt recordings within a 6 hour window, but it looks like it was just a coincidence.
