    Ya. Grey's was 2 back-to-back episodes this week, but scheduled as a single 2-hour recording. Same with last Monday's L&O.

    Merg, I had this happen last week, but I was in the middle of watching a recorded show and the HR24 was recording 2 other shows. About 25 minutes into the recordings the unit just froze up. Both of the recordings were terminated at that point. I was not using trick play on the playback at the point of the freeze so I am sure that the playback wasn't the issue. I could access menus, just the hard drive seemed to have stopped responding to any commands. I had to rbr the unit to get it going again.

    Apparently, they're different as the HR24-500/H24-100 models' version of 0x3DE's risk level is Customer Candidate, but our's is High Risk.

    You made a good point though, but I would think any tinkering with our software would amount to a new firmware version... different from 0x3DE.

    I made an edit to my post, which may address this. We are currently on dc and de was the one to be pushed this weekend. What I was trying to say, and not well on the original wording, was that maybe they are leaving dc on us a week longer in order to do more work on the de version we will get next week, maybe to get it more stable.

    Aah! Well, that does make a little more sense.... ;):D

    I'm just hoping they found a fix at the last moment for Sony TVs...

    ...which brings up a thought I had... yesterday... though I imagine the people who work on the firmware at DirecTV probably already figured out this might be a possibility, and disregarded SOME of what I said....

    I originally said my Pioneer AVR had an issue with the HR24-100 as well as the Sony TV given that I had the same issue when optical was hooked up to the Pioneer AVR. However, it occurred to me yesterday that I had problems with the HR24-100 connected via Component/RCA until I had rebooted... as simply disconnecting the HDMI cables didn't do the job by itself, I also had to reboot the unit... giving it a fresh start away from HDMI.

    I've reconnected the unit via optical. Will try and do some testing later today...

    There was a Tuesday night CE for the HR24-500 last week, so you never know.

    Not enough testing to know for sure, but the fact that I managed to watch the Series Finale of "Lost" with only one freeze-up (which appeared to be unrelated to the receiver) and no loss of audio tells me that I can probably rule out any Pioneer AVR issues.

    I can't edit my post since the thread for the current CE has been LOCKED, but I'll test some more tomorrow to completely rule it out... :)

    I don't think its external equioment failing, I htink there are output issues probably relating to hdcp.
    I can usually watch an hour before freezing.

    Teays...
    Last night I was able to watch almost an hour long show with no issues.

    But, I was babying the remote. FF only, no 30Slips, no stacked commands. Then, with about 10 minutes left, coming out of the last commerical break, I was slow pressing play out of FF and hit the Replay button out of habit. Unit locked.

    Almost every issue I have had seems to be coming out of trickplay.

    yup, sounds familiar.
    mine locks up (no set time pattern) but it does not matter if its mrv, local playlist, or trickplay during live (buffered) tv.
    but trickplay is the culprit, that I can tell.

    Well again, constant use of tp without many issues. I only use ff and rw and never 30 sec skip or skip back so maybe these are the problem keys. As noted in earlier post my only freeze happen while watching a show and no tp within 5 minutes of the freeze.

    You missed the point (I think)...

    I wasn't saying that the external equipment was failing... but I was under the impression that the HR24-100 was having an issue with my AVR as well as the TV due to me experiencing the problem when using optical with my AVR, but not when I'm using RCA plugs... so in the now LOCKED thread for the CURRENT CE, I posted that my HR24-100 had an issue with my AVR as well as my TV.

    However, I simply didn't think of restarting the receiver after unplugging HDMI, until I experienced the same issue with RCA plugs unless I restarted first...

    Luckily, I figure the people at DirecTV were smart enough to figure that out...

    3 issues.

    Still getting Error 3 when trying to send diagnostic reports, even after switching over to a pure deca setup. Router is a DLink 655, 1.33 firmware. All setings are pure defaults.

    Second issue is a bit odd. Not all remote recordings will show on the HR24. For example, it won't show last nights Celebrity Apprentice, but will show several other shows from the same remote DVR.

    Lastly, it will sometimes stop showing remote DVRs, they come and go.

    I'm guessing your router comes into play in the highlighted area. I have the same one, and the firmware has been updated mulitple times since 1.33 - the latest is 1.42A - you might want to update your firmware.

    In addition, the DNS IP setting on the DVR has a bearing.

    Every DLink router I've had was a POS. I realize others have had good luck with them, and not other brands, but you couldn't GIVE me a DLink.

    I use Belkin here at work (the price was right), and though I had some initial setup troubles, it's worked pretty good.

    Though mine are dd-wrt modded, I've only had ONE issue in years using a Lynksys... regardless of firmware, and NEVER had to deal with any of the setup issues, or other such issues with them as I've had to with some other brands.

    Netgear's a close second though...
