    Do you have a HR24 and are getting blank ATSC/Over The Air recordings or a keep or delete popup as soon as you try to play them? If yes please vote as for which manufactures model of the HR24 you're having the problem with in the poll. I'm curious if it's only one model of the HR24 or if all three versions are having this problem.

    Have not done any AM21 recording yet with my -500. Any particular channel you want me to hit since we are in the same area?

    I will take a look at this as well. I have done some Starz recording without any issues.

    Doesn't matter which ATSC channel, it's random and happens on all of them. For testing I set up Leno on one HR24-500 and Letterman on another, both will get hit one or more times a week with a keep/delete as soon as I try to play them. No problems with a HR23-700 doing the same thing.

    Haven't had any problems with DBS delivered channels, just ATSC via the AM21.

    Thanks

    Not really specific to the HR24-500. Had the same issues with the HR-22 that it used to be hooked up to.

    On the SAT locals we get the "silent brrrriiiipppps", on the OTA via AM21 we don't get them, but the trick play is useless most of the time because about the 90% of the screen stays "frozen" and you can't see when to come out of FF/RW.

    Haven't had any of the "keep or delete" problems with it on either DVR though.

    Would the person that voted for problems with their HR24-100 please provide some detail on what problems they had? Thanks

    Had a big storm wipe out my sat signals last Saturday, so I tuned my HR24-500/AM21 to an OTA channel. Pressed the record button for the local news, but when I tried to play it back later, got the IKD (instant keep or delete) message.

    :)

    Sorry, I hit the 100 button, but meant 500. Have had recurring issues with this since I hooked up the AM21. Also have picture freezing issues with boht HR24s, but have not had that as much since last SW upgrade (though I am sure it is a coincidence). Last few ATSC recordings have played fine. Last problem, was a week ago on the off air PBS channel in DFW (13-1). I have pretty much resigned myself to not recording on the OTA channels since as one person stated, the hit or miss aspect of the problem makes future recordings risky, especially for a first run episode.

    I've reported issues since the HR24-500 was first available.

    Issues include:
    -Leave it on an OTA channel, power off, power on more than six hours later and screen is blank.
    -While watching OTA periodic audio blips, not using DD.
    -Some recordings have multiple areas of pixelation that were not present during live broadcast.

    Never experienced KOD.

    I sat down to set this up last night and noticed my AM21 is hooked up to the HR22-100, not the HR24-500. Sorry!

    I voted for the 200 instead of the 500 by accident. Either my trackball jumped or I am going blind.

    I suppose at this point it would be fair to ask if people using the AM21 with a HR24-100 or HR24-200 are having zero problems (since all the corrected votes seem to be going against the HR24-500).

    Also noted today some major popping and clicking sounds whenever I went to bring up Media Share with an OTA channel tuned. Its as if its struggling to hold on to the OTA picture

    RAD, good work. Looks like this poll has zeroed in on the "500". Now if only D* will take some corrective action!!

    So where can one buy a -100 or -200 model?

    I really wanted to get an HR24 before this fall season, but I do a lot of OTA recording as D* doesn't offer my locals (though they are scheduled for October). So that scared me away from the HR24, but if the -100 and -200 aren't having the OTA problems, then I might reconsider.

    Are there any sites where you can specifically order a -100 or -200? I think I'd prefer a -200 as my HR21-200 is a lot better than my HR21-100.
