    I have an HR20 that recently started only displaying recorded content. I cannot watch regular television or anything that is in the guide. I do have connected home (whole Home) DVR service. My thought process is the receiver is shot and its showing recorded shows from other receivers. ??

    Can you provide a little more info as to what happens when you try to watch LiveTV? Also, have you performed a menu reset of the receiver?

    You can test your theory by going in to the menu and selecting just that DVR in List.

    What happens when you select a live show from the Guide? A future show?

    When watching live TV, are you getting any error messages, like searching for satellite signal?
