    I sure can't cover all objections to that change, but do recall a couple of folks were incensed, and I mean, on fire! It turns out their big concern was being tipped off on a sports score, or a scene from a show, or porn showing up when a kid entered the room, not being able to stop in time, pause, etc. The very simple workaround was to tune to a PBS station prior to spending time in the PIG.

    I found I purposely spent less time in the PIG after the whole discussion. YMMV!

    I can see that, but my use for trick play while in PIG was watching something buffered or recorded and wanting to skip/slip through commercial breaks (or occasionally backing up to check something that actually required more of my attention) while in the guide, playlist or to-do list... changing to a different station kinda defeats the purpose of PIG! :rolling:

    Well, unfortunately 0x736 hasn't fixed the partial recording issues with the HR20. :mad2:

    Last night it recorded NCIS:LA (CBS local OTA) for 61 minutes (not a guide data issue, as it was the usual 1 hour in the guide) and started recording Perception a minute late, at 10:01 EDT. When it happens, it usually involves one OTA and one 'regular' (satellite) program... but I've seen it happen at least once with two regular programs.

    Ah well... :(

    To clarify, it needed the same tuner for the two programs as Face Off was being recorded using the other! That was, of course, after setting a manual timer for Face Off due to the SyFy guide data screw-up being discussed in this thread:

    My two HR-20s downloaded 0736 night before last. Yesterday afternoon I tried using the radar App on one of them and only succeeded in completely locking up the receiver. The "loading" screen froze and other screens would come up with "loading" still on the screen but would not respond. Resorted to an RBR to regain control. Decided not to try the other receiver.

    You have to be on very outdated software. Did you ever check the firmware number?

    I agree 100%. What were they thinking to remove trickplay while browsing the guide or looking at the playlist? And even worse, if you are looking at the playlist and you hit "pause" it PLAYS the program highlighted!! I use this function daily on my R15's and get pissed every time I use my R22 and forget that it's gone. It was also stupid to remove the dash-dash delete but I guess the hit the red button twice patch to appease irked customers is alright.

    Version 0x6d8, downloaded 6-12-13. Don't ask me why it hasn't taken anything since then. BTW, I do CEs on other IRDs, usually not this one.

    Unfortunately, this firmware version did not resolve the slowdown issues for my HR24-500 related to autorecording discussed in a previous thread. I used the following:
    AALL WHITE SOX EVENTS CCHANS 665 665 & Sports, Baseball
    AALL WHITE SOX EVENTS CCHANS 307 & Sports, Baseball

    At first, responsiveness seemed normal, but gradually over the past couple of weeks it has slowly worsened. It's nowhere near as bad as before, but I'm commonly yet intermittently, getting 15-30 second delays with certain functions:

    Up Arrow (for Quick Tune)
    Selecting a Quick Tune channel icon
    Menu, then down arrow (blank screen on Search & Browse)
    Info, then right arrow
    Stop

    I've deleted the autorecord entries and the delays have stopped, as discovered by LiQiCE. I must be in a really small minority, as I don't see others reporting the same. Perhaps the receiver just doesn't like the White Sox who are really pathetic this year. Maybe it's just trying to help me out by keeping me from watching. :evilgrin:

    Trust me. As a lifelong White Sox fan, you really don't want to watch them this year. I gave up months ago.

    Cubs don't play we'll either but lots of fans continue to watch. That's how much they love their Cubbies.

    That's because Cubs fans are idiots.

    kkl,

    Sorry to hear you're still having problems. I have an "AALL RANGERS" & Sports & Hockey autorecord running and it is picking up recordings every few days (reruns of old games) and I haven't experienced any slowdowns with 0x0736 for over 2 weeks now, with a fair amount of TV watching. I wonder what the difference is between your setup and mine. Maybe I'll try switching to an "AALL RANGERS EVENTS" & Sports & Hockey to see if that causes slowdowns. I know the "HDTV" keyword was still causing slowdowns for me.

    I was recording a program and went to play it while it was recording, all I got was a blank screen. I went to the live show and it was also blank while tuning to any other channel works correctly. After the program finished recording I restarted the receiver(HR20-700) and both the live channel and recording now work. Thoughts and Opinions?

    So, you leave out EVENTS? I'll give that a try, even though, as you note, the receiver will try to schedule non-live programs. If you try adding EVENTS, that would help determine if that keyword is a problem. As I mentioned, the really noticeable delay took a couple of weeks to develop.

    Edit: Actually, leaving out EVENTS as a keyword resulted in a lot of pre-game and post-game shows which I don't get (MLBEI). So, I'll try this:
    AALL WHITE SOX CCHANS 665 666 & Show Types, Events
    AALL WHITE SOX CCHANS 307 & Sports, Baseball

    Hello, I am recently new to the forum and have a quick question, I see that there is a new national release for my h21-100. Yesterday, I tried to force the box to update, it downloaded software but when I went into the menu to see the version it was the same that I had previously. Can anyone help me with getting the latest firmware? Thank you and your assistance is greatly appreciated.

    It is strongly suggested that you wait until DTV wants you to have it and NOT to force the software downloads. It can knock out your receiver. Yep, it is rare, but it has happened in the past.
