    I re-booted all my machines at 6:30 this morning. I;'ve had no problems since, and all my SL's are set... all my recordings are there... and my ToDo list is populated properly.

    Clearly neither of you had this coincide with any hormonal issues in your household.

    It's all in the timing.

    Doubtful, but if possible, I will share the reason. Most likely I will simply get an "all clear."

    Second lock up of the day occurred just after 1:30PM EST for me. Got finished watching a recorded program (60 Minutes/Amazing Race from last night), hit stop and the screen just went black. My main HR20-700 would not respond to ANY input so I had to do another RBR.

    Man DirecTV has some serious issues today... after not having a single problem in well over 8 months I've have to reboot TWICE in one day. :eek2: :nono:

    The only thing I lost was my "Favorites" so it took about 30 minutes to rebuild my list then my guide was back to the way it was before. Hey at least this happened on a Monday and not Sunday during football! :p

    2x HR20-700 dead. needed a couple RBRs to get them going.

    I'm thinking I'm ready for 2009 and the new TiVO boxes. :(

    I have two HR20's. Both seemed dead. I unplugged the power cords on both units and they came back to life. I lost my recordings and my series links on one DVR, the other one was okay.

    Not flawless, but I still have a DSR704 DirecTiVo in the bedroom that never seems to have these glitches.

    I have also tried that. Last night, I put my receiver on standby. When I got up this morning, it was extremely hot & I do not have anything on top of it. I wonder if this mess may have fried my receiver.

    By the way, I would be very interested to know if any HR20 users with OTA lost some OTA after they reboot. I want to know if I'm special...

    [update: Did a complete OTA reset and went through the initial setup again. 36-1 is back, but 14-1 is still dead, and I think that's actually an issue with the tower. Doesn't matter for me since these channels have identical programming.]

    Sorry I respectfully disagree. The second time mine froze it locked up, the screen froze, no sound, no nothing. The first time i watched it for an hour and a half before i realized there was a problem because I woke up with the unit on ESPN and I was watching sportscenter. It want till I went to change channels that I realized that no response from the remote. Doesnt make it any less a problem, but a different problem nonetheless.
