    My recording of The Simpsons last night says it was canceled because of an unexpected error (3), and it is not in my playlist. Dexter was not recorded, with the message "The episode was not recorded because the program is no longer available (13).

    ETA: I should have mentioned this was on the internal drive, not the Seagate FAP in my signature.

    I noticed that I got the same error (3) from trying to record Dexter last night about 15 minutes into the show - it was showing just fine live. BTW this was on an HR21-700.

    I finally experienced the audio dropouts. Watching live TV, I paused it for a short period, then hit play, and when a commercial came up I FFD it to the live portion, and that's when the audio started breaking up. Rewind a few seconds and hit play corrected it. This can be duplicated, at least on this box.

    I have no audio when I first turn the box on. Once I use trickplay or change channels, audio is there. I also am having lots of audio drop outs. Didn't have either of these issues before this update.

    I've had my HR20-100 since 10-1-07 with no real problems.

    Yesterday I networked my HR20-700 and works great.

    Today I networked my HR20-100, and within an hour, I get the Ext. 762 nag.

    I pulled card out and put back in, had picture for 5 seconds then went 762.

    I RBR'd with card in, then card out, getting Ext. 762, 761 respectively.

    I refreshed services via DTV.com 4 times.

    I did system test several times, and Card # listed all zero's, but everything else tested fine.

    I inserted a new different card, system info card # still came up all zero's, and getting 762 nag.

    Also getting the DVR service not active on my playlist.

    Did the pencil eraser thing, no help.

    Just a coincidence this is happening the same day I networked?

    I can record a program via DTV DVR Scheduler and the record light is on, just no one home in the IRD. And the picture shows up 762.

    Bad card reader?

    So now, after several hours with DTV on the phone, I hung up with still no TV and a scheduled visit for this Friday. That would make it almost two weeks without TV since I got the update on Tuesday morning. As I hung up from the last tech, I was able to figure out how to format the box myself, and set it up for the right dish (5LNB), and that fixed everything. Since then, no freezes, no reboots, all is right in the world again.

    Since we got this upgrade on the 14th, we don't seem to always be able to keep the cache. We will turn the tv on some time during the evening and discover that there is no cache. It is not due to anything in particular like having received another upgrade, a power failure, or anything like that. It is erratic in that it doesn't happen all the time. Any ideas?

    The box claims that programming on channel 654 is not authorized when doing searches and I try to record programs on that channel. I can tune to channel 654 and I get programming just fine. I told it to go ahead record the shows It shows all the other regional sports networks in the guide (I have it set to only show channels that I receive). While I'm tuned to the channel 654 it appears in the guide (with the channel number grayed out). BTW channel 654-1 (the part time HD version of 654), 655, and 655-1 (FSBA alternate version) are in the guide normally.

    Hmm, looks like the problem is present on my HR21-700, HR20-700 as well.

    Last night, when watching American Idol, the progress bar randomly appeared on screen, jumped the tick from 8 minutes to 11 minutes then vanished. It didn't impact my program viewing, but it was weird that it showed up out of nowhere. Also, I had a lot of audio dropouts during AI (which, in some cases, was a mercy frankly).

    I also had a weird progress bar incident during Lost last week as well where about 35 minutes in, (I was recording and watching around 15 minutes behind live) the progress bar pops up, and the color of it was red (or orange) to the 35 minute mark - but the bar turned to green (like it was no longer recording) from that point on. It looked like the recording had stopped.

    However, after I panicked and set it up on my TiVo, the whole show was there. When I played it again from my List, the entire show was available and the bar was red for the full 60 minutes.

    Today is the second time since the 0x1FE update that my reciever stopped receiving IR commands (it's a harmony 880 remote and the ir works just fine for the tv and avr). The menu, guide, up/down, and select buttons on the face of the HR20-100 work fine. The first time it happend I was able to resolve w/ a menu reset. I also verified that the DirecTv remote would also not work prior to the reset.

    I just walked my wife through this procedure over the phone and it did not resolve the issue. I'll try unplugging the unit when I get home from work tonight.


    Afternoon update: I had asked my wife to push the guide button and leave the guide on screen until it timed out. Someone in another thread suggested that this worked when his IR stopped working. She called back and said that the dvr is still unresponsive.

    Update #2: Before leaving work I did a refresh via the DirecTv website. When I got home the tv and dvr were off; turned both on and the IR worked. Not sure if was the refresh or just time.

    I'm also having lots of flickering with the screensaver - like the screensaver will flash to the paused screen image for a second.

    I had this same issue. Now appears to be randomly flakey on record and playback of just OTA locals. Do you see any issues with that?

    Yesterday I noticed the HR20-100 was outputting at 480i so reset to 1080i several times but after a few seconds went back to 480i again. I changed auto format to no. No help. After doing a reset everything is fine. I don't know how long it was like that but definately after the last update.

    When I turn the HR20 on, I frequently have no audio. Changing channels solves this problem. Also, when resuming playback after pause the audio start is delayed.

    For the first time this morning, I had the no-audio issue. Had to change the channel to get audio. but I could tell that my box rebooted sometime last night because when I came out this morning, it was on, and I had turned it off last night before bed. Seems to be rebooting sometime during the night every night now. I had cancelled my original service call, but had to call back and reschedule so a tech could take a look at it. But all does seem well, so I am happier, but not completely happy until the reboots stop. Maybe in the next update?

    Was really hoping for a CE this weekend for the HR20-100. This national release has brought back stability problems for me. I have to a RBR at least twice a day due to frequent lockups. As I have reported before, I leave my HR20-100 on at all times, just turn my TV and AVreceiver on and off. I will turn them on and the either the screensaver will be frozen, the video and audio will be frozen, or the screen will just be grey. No button on the remote or front panel will have any effect. A RBR will fix it for a few hours, and I have never had a problem while I have been actively watching, but something about it going to screensaver mode seems to lock it up.

    It would be nice if we could disable the screensaver - it might fix a lot of stability problems with these boxes.
