    I am near Chicago and have not received 0x146 - I thought everyone would have it by 4/22. What is going on?

    Do you have a -100 or -700?

    You're still seeing the audio problem with the 0x146 code as well?

    Exact same thing has been happening to me.....first skip sends the show back to the beginning, does it on all my recorded shows.

    Then you should have 0x145. 0x146 is for the -100 units.

    Yup - the HR20 is slow as hell. You better have a lot of patience before ordering this machine or else you might end up throwing it out the window. The recent update has resolved some issues, but certainly did not improve one bit in the speed department. Animations off, native on/off, TV resolution settings, etc., it just doesn't matter - still a slug. Approx 4-7 seconds switching channels. I swear one of my first DTV receivers seems like a rocket compared to this 100 model. Feels like I'm going backwards in time or something. This unit is definitely NOT for channel surfers.

    SinBin you are so right both of my HR20-100S AND HR20-100B are as slow as any DVR I've ever had. It takes at lease 7-8 seconds every time I change the channel. Channel surfing is out of the question. I hope that with the next software upgrade they can do something about this. Also Audio problems getting worse.

    Yep, I would not like to channel surf with this thing - luckily we don't typically channel surf, and I have other DVRs that I can use if I want to do so.

    Other then the issues reporting threads... that is as close as we have right now. We have had in the past people try to maintain a bug tracking thread...

    If you want to tackle it for the HR20-100... have at it.

    For #1: It's on the Radar, but not sure where
    For #2: Do a search... it is not a bug with the HR20 (software)... it is a system wide thing, that will still take a while until it can be re-enabled
    For #3: That is pinky... and will probably be one of the last bugs/quirks fixed in the system.

    Not sure if it's the 0x146 issue or not but I'll mention it here anyway.Noticed since it was updated, my HR20-100 hung twice. Once when I came home, turned it on and it shows the last channel it was tuned on but nothing I press on either the remote control or the HR20 buttons worked.

    Second time that happened was when I tried to play music and photo from my pc. After a while, no response from remote nor buttons on the receiver.

    Both times I had to reset the box.

    Also time was 1 hour behind, but that was fixed after I reset the box.

    Had the older software for 3 weeks and never the box hung. Last two days I had those two hung session.

    HD Channel 10 Sacramento from satellite seems to work fine now... I have no idea what resolved the problem (maybe a change in Ch. 10's broadcast signal?).

    I noticed this as well about three days ago, Sac channel 10 consistently works now....Yippee. I don't believe this was resolved by the update though since it wasn't working immediately after the update.

    Recorded "Heros" last night, on my HR20-100 and (luckily) on my HR10-250. The HR20 finished on the hour, cutting off the last 2 minutes of the program. The HR10 got the whole program, which went over time by about 2 minutes (Hiro actually made it back in time to NY, which did not show on the HR20). Apparently the HR10 tivo records according to the actual length of the program & the HR20 is governed by the clock, so that any program that may extend over will be cut off. This isn't the first time the HR20 has cut off the end of a program or the first time the HR10 has served as the "hero". I know I can extend the time on the HR20, but it looks like the only way to beat this out on the current s/w version of the HR20 is to just extend every recording by a few minutes. Seems like a waste...

    Waste? Maybe but I've always done this with my season pass recordings on my HR10 just for safe measure. No need to stop adding an extra minute at the beginning and end of shows now.

    My HR20 recorded 'Hero' in its entirety just fine, and I'm 99.99% sure I don't have padding configured on it.

    Lower...
    This might have happened because you had two shows scheduled to record in the next hour on both tuners, and neither of those tuners was the same as Heroes. Just a thought. /s

    There's always the possibility of a problem specific to my HR20; I'll run a few more tests to be sure & if it continues, it's time to call D* for a replacement or to just add padding to my season passes as suggested by Duffinator.

    Thanks for the thought Steve, but "Heroes" was the last thing I had scheduled.

    Just found this response to a question on another thread by someone else who had the same problem I did. It answers my question; 0x146 on the HR20-100 must have the same bug.
