    I was fussing with my VISTA PC (Media Center) and eventually shut it down.
    Went into the living room to turn on the HR20 only to see some message about "Media Center Off Line..." on a mostly black screen. I hit Guide on the remote and the entire screen went black. After that there was NO response from the HR20.

    I hit the Red Button to reset it, and the unit worked fine the rest of the night.

    So, I'm guessing this crash was network related. That could be a serious problem as my computer is ON and OFF several times a day.

    Same thing happened today. In my office working playing on the VISTA PC. Shut it down (turned it OFF). HR20 has not been on since last night. Last night I was not using the network features, just watching boring TV.

    I turn on the HR20 and see "Media Center ........" on a black screen. Hit MENU this time. Screen goes black, system locked up and non-responsive. Red Button reboot gets it working again.

    What's up, DirecTV? Anyone else seen a similar message? My PC is named "Media Center PC" on the network. Your message may have your computers network name instead of the message I saw.
