I'm definitely seeing this on my HR24's as well.
I have notice this as of today when i was changing to cinemax. I though it was cinemax bit it's not. I have native off and my TV is on 1080i only. My background on the screen is set to black color. For me i change the channel and background come on but no pic for a while. Even after the banner is gone. I have a HR24-100
I've got the same problem lately with my two HR23's.
FWIW, the problem for me only exists with a HR23 that's hooked up to my home theater through a Yamaha receiver and a Panasonic plasma.
A HR20-700 that runs my kitchen system, and which is hooked up straight to the TV, doesn't exhibit the problem, nor does a H23 in my bedroom. All connections are HDMI.
+1 on all units 2-HR21's and an HR22 . I've tried clearing the memory on channel 1 which didn't seem to help, A menu reset did seem to help for a while .
hr24-100 did the all black (except for info banner) no matter what. reboot was only remedy.
Same here, 10-15 second delay for the first channel change in the morning. Happens both on HR20-700 and R22.
Info bar shows but the screen is light gray.
the color of screen "grey" or "black" is a setting in your dvr. not sure if some realize this. Also this started after, not because of the last rollout, something else is going on. I too was thinking weather related, or more damage from my recent lightning strike.
What you are experiencing is not a problem, it is a Directv feature to enhance your viewing pleasure:hurah:
I suspect something has changed with the central office processing of signals since it didn't start with the new software -- it has just started without any changes on our part. I really wish they would quit messing around and just provide a system that works reasonably well without 15-20 sec delays between channel changes.
HR-24 / HR22 both with the same issue. Out of curiosity, does anyone with this issue have it on a DVR/Reciever that is not network enabled?
Same issue here.
glad it's just not me noticing this delay lag.
count me in for having this issue, but only with my hr23. h20 in the bedroom doesn't seem to have a problem, at least not that i've seen yet...
This latest "improvement" is ridiculous. I almost rebooted just a few minutes ago when I changed channels. Took so long I thought my HR23 had froze up!!
If anyone has found out what going on can you please post.
I posted that I was seeing the issue a couple of days ago, but it's getting pretty ridiculous now. It's takes a good 10 seconds to change the channel on my HR24 now.
Since this seems to be an HR thing, should this thread be moved to the HR forum? I bet if it was over there, we would see a lot of other people reporting the issue as well.
I forgot to add
Native is turned off on my hr24 and hr22. Resolution is hardcoded to 1081i
The HR22 is connected via HDMI to a Toshiba 65” and also over composite cables to composite-coax converter which is plugged into a 13” Symphonic TV
The HR24 is over HDMI to my Panasonic plasma
Both HR’s have the same issue.
Just to clarify - Is the sluggishness even after the initial channel change or is it most/every channel change?
My HR24-100 is ridiculously slow on the first change, but is fine after that. I cleared the VRAM and reset it yesterday and today was a little better.
Here is the behavior for all my devices:
- Hit the power button on remote
- DVR/receiver powers on
- Channel was tuned to say 360 (Fox News)
- channel info is displayed
- channel is displayed immediately
- channel info times out
- Using remote I enter 501 (HBO)
- Screen blanks
- After about ten seconds info bar appears with correct info
- Info bar times out after some number of seconds
- Screen is still black
- wait ... nothing will happen for at least 90 seconds (that is the longest i've waited)
- At this point i usually hit the channel up or down button, and the next channel will appear immediately
- I can then go back to 501 and the channel appears as expected
- From this point on I have no issues until I "power off" the DVR/receiver (hit the power button on the remote)
