    I recently moved and did the transfer of boxes with Directv. In the new setup, I'm getting the same good signal, and HD picture quality is great. But I've noticed this annoying freeze to black screen for a second. It takes a while into a new viewing (from turning it off the night before) for it to happen the first time- -to the point I start to think-- maybe it won't do it today, and then it does. Sometimes (although not as often) it is accompanied with a slight pixelation or green bottom half screen. I would think it was a signal issue perhaps, but none of the other non HD dvrs seem to be having the issue.

    thanks for any thoughts.

    PS- -upon initial setup, I had to red button reset it once because it didn't boot completely on initial plug in, and then a second time because it hung during guided setup (which I had to run to get the 2nd tuner recognized).

    If it is only on ESPN HD, then we are all experiencing it.

    If it's not on ESPNHD, check your signal strengths. Let us know what channel it is on.

    It's only on ESPN, but that's all I've really watched so far in HD (too busy unpacking boxes).

    the weird thing is that I didn't notice it at my other house, only a few weeks ago. I would have thought that I would have noticed it then as well, if it is a ESPN to Dtv problem.

    It sounds like from the other thread that they know of the problem and are working on it.

    thanks
