    I watched "History Detectives" this evening that I'd recorded from my local OTA PBS HD channel 28-1. Exactly 12 minutes in it paused, no pop-up screens or anything just still video & no audio. After some playing around with the transport keys it finally let me FF past the spot and continue playing. I could Rewind back and play thru the same spot again without problems, no pixelation or anything to indicate a signal problem.

    The exact same thing happened again at around 35 minutes in.

    Mine does the same thing every once in a while. One thing I have noticed also, is when it freezes, the remote becomes totally useless. Can't exit, go to the list, guide, or any thing else till it decides to start playing again.:confused:

    That could be what happened to me also, I was hitting keys on the remote to no effect then suddenly it worked. I assumed it was me, but the machine could have just decided to start playing again by itself.

    This is full bandwidth 1920 x 1080 HD not the DTV "HD-Lite" stuff so perhaps there is a buffer overflow that takes the OS a while to recover from.
