    I restarted using the red reset button on the front of the unit and everything seemed fine for 20 minutes or so. Then it started freezing again. I ran system test and nothing was detected. It was doing it with a program I recorded 2 weeks ago. Maybe it's heat related. I will see how it does tonight. My guess is the hard drive is failing but maybe it's something else.

    You can see the temperature in the info screen. If it gets too hot (around 140), an on screen message comes up warning you that it is overheating.

    Do the H21/23 receivers get Pandora? I thought only DVRs got Pandora.

    Correct, only the HD DVRs get Pandora.

    I thought that would be the case, too. But I've got the Pandora icon on both sets, while only the living room HR20-700 is networked (via ethernet). No SWM, no DECA.

    Well, I still don't have it on my HR24's. (Even though I have received the 0x59E update on both of my HR24's)

    I only have it on one of my 3 DVRs -- my HR22. It's the only one that got the update so far. All my other DVRs (HR21, 23 & 24) have not gotten the update yet, and as far as I'm concerned, I hope they never get it.

    I want to keep the trick play in PIG as long as I can since we use it regularly. It's amazing though, that the last 2 updates have taken SOOOO long to propagate. I know they need to take it slow, but this molasses slow.

    All I ever see is a full orange bar no matter how much program is in the buffer. That's not very useful.

    Is no one else seeing this?

    Playlist individual episode detail screen: Play button doesn't play program. Now that there's no control over PIG this makes no sense.

    My HR24-500 is connected to the internet but I don't see the Pandora icon in the Extras menu.

    If it's 0x59e, then it's the same version I have. It's been well over 48 hours and still no Pandora icon and also, there is still nothing being shown when I select "My DirecTv" under Menu. It just says "check back later and we'll have shows to share". Again, this is on both of my HR24's. I'm wondering if this is an HR24 specific issue since it is happening to both of mine. Otherwise, the DVRs seem to working just fine. Right now I'm thinking about just waiting until 0x59e is in the stream on a regular basis for the HR24's and try forcing a software download then to see if anything changes.

    Have you tried rebooting twice in an hour to flush the cache, and let it rebuild? Dont know if that will solve anything, but worth a try if you havent.

    Haven't tried that yet. I'll do that right now and see what happens.

    Look under "Extras", not "My DirecTV".

    It's actually twice within 30 minutes to flush the guide.

    Yes. But doesn't one have to reach a certain point in the first reset before hitting the second? And can you tell me what point that is? [Once or twice— being impatient— I did resets very close together: No new Guide.]

    No, you can do the second reboot as soon as your back to live tv after the first reboot.
