    Anybody having trouble with their HR2x receivers locking up this morning? Both my HR21 and HR20 is locking and not responding to front panel or remote commands. Did a RBR on one, video will work, but not responsive. What's going on??

    I'm in the process of a RBR on my other. I'll see how it does. :mad:

    Same here. My wife was up last night and said there was an update installed and the receiver rebooted. Since then my HR-23 is completely unresponsive.

    Yep.... at about 4:30am PDT all three of my HR2xs locked up. The one I was watching continued to play the program that I was playing, but none of the three HR2x's would respond to any remote button push or any front panel button push.

    Same with both my receivers, I did 2 RBR's and the R22 seamed to be working again, I didn't get a chance to check the HR21 after the second RBR.

    Same here. Our main HR20 unresponsive. I haven't checked my other two HR2Xs yet. RBR did not cure the problem. Trying again.

    I think this new 3-D firmware update hosed something big time. I've RBR'ed my HR20 twice. It will take ONE command from the remote, then dead as a doornail until I RBR again.

    My HR22/100 received their latest download (0x3de) last night. Thirty minutes ago all control functions (manual and remote) froze up. Did a reset but problem returned. Did a second reset and system is working so far. Seems to be a rash of this nation wide!

    This does not seem tobe related to a firmware update, as none of my locked up boxes have updated within the past week.

    My boxes locked up too. Also, oddly, I noticed that my guide data last night only went as far as Friday the 11th. Something going on there.

    Yes! :mad: Mine would not turn on. I had to pull the plug. Now the GUI is stuck and doesn't respond to the remote. RBR, 2nd try...

    Just as I thought. It was updated to 0x3df at 0327 this morning.

    I had to reset one box three times and another twice before I could get them to work. Anyone else who got theirs backup finding the channel changes to be slow.

    My HR21 updated last week with latest firmware. It seemed to be running slow, but at least it worked. My HR20 got the update last night. I did a RBR, hit the guide button, told me the firmware had been updated then went to a black screen and locked again. Hmmmm..... Hope this is resolved soon or I'll be getting phone calls at work from my wife and kids. :nono2:
