    Issue noted with 10B8: Trick play stops working, cannot play out anything from MyVOD. Worked fine for a couple of days but now is stuck on the channel I left it on last night. Anyone see the same?

    I apologize if you addressed this, but when you say full release, do you mean a release to everyone in the country, or a release that will have further fixes and upgrades (in other words, another version)?

    That would be a new one to me... I haven't see that problem posted (with 10B8) on any of the forums.

    Welcome to the forum Chompis.:welcome_s

    Sound like your system locked up, this is not an issue that is only related to 10D8. Press the red button on the front of your reciever under the access card door and you should be ok. Your guide data will rebuild over the next 48hrs.

    I had another blank live video experience last night. Was watching a recorded show, as it was recording (but about 20 minutes behind real time). When I reached the end of the show (but before the actual end of the recording) I pressed the stop button. At that time my live video was blank with no video or audio.

    I tried changing channels, that did not bring it back.
    I tried doing the signal strength process, that did not bring it back.
    I did a regular reset (via the menu), that did bring it back.

    This is the third time that I have had the blank live video experience since getting 10B8. Twice I've had to reset to restore video. Once I was able to get it back by changing channels.

    Carl

    Edit to correct a statement: This is the first time with the blank screen on 10B8. The first two were with 10AF.

    Actually I thought this was only the R15, but last night I had it happen with the SD-DVR40 for the first time. :nono:

    I ran the System Test on my R15 today mainly for the SAT Tuner issue in other threads and noticed the Phone portion of the test was always passing. I don't have a phone line connected.

    Just ran into something I've not run into before. I'm loading up SLs for some more testing. I also noticed a show on today that I wanted to record, just that showing, a movie. I hit record and the R15 came up with the list of conflicts and I told it to cancel the other records and record this movie. It started recording the movie just fine. I watch about 10 minutes of it and placed the R15 in standby and left. I returned about 30 minutes later and noticed the R15 stopped recording my manual record and now was recording the #1 SL I had setup.

    I want to make sure I understand this logic, which seems very strange to me. If I queue a manual record and via the conflict screen tell the R15 to indeed record this movie, shouldn't it record the entire movie? Even the 10 minutes I watched, while it was recording is nowhere to be found in MYVOD. Seems like when you resolve conflicts you really don't and the 5 minute message must have come up while in standby and defaulted to changing channels in the middle of the movie I was recording to record the SL episode.

    EDIT: BTW, by "loading up SLs" I'm referring to SLs with multiple conflicts. During the time period listed above I have 3 SLs set to record. I would expect the R15 to record the top priority SL except when I tell it to do a manual record. So this is an instance with a few conflicts.

    Also this is under 10B8.

    Wolffpack, I have seen this same messed up logic, sometimes when I have cleared up conflicts in the todo list. (haven't gotten 10D8 yet) It will start recording 5-10 mins of a show and then switch to another that was a high priority, even thought the episode was canceled from the doto list. It happen last week Thursday but I didn't care because they were reruns or I had them recording elsewhere. Heck, I'm pretty sure I've had it do it twice in the same time block.

    Cool!
    Going back and looking at your original post in this thread, is there any update to exactly what this release includes or what fixed have been made?
    (You said the list was subject to change....)
