    Who has seen this (the screen saver moving at about 3 times normal speed)? Yikes! Harmless enough, we presume.

    I saw it once a few weeks ago, but since "66" I see it a lot. Maybe "6B" will fix that, and maybe that is what they mean by "stability fix".

    Not seen it on my HR24, although, I must admit that I never see the screen saver at all. :D

    I saw it, just once. Hasn't happened again. I thnk I was changing something in the setup menu when it occurred, but I don't remember what.

    It was a bit scary! That DVR has 200 hrs of unwatched programming on it that I don't want to lose.

    Did you happen to spill a soda or cup of coffee on it? I hear the receivers aren't supposed to be given caffeine. :grin:

    I have seen this on an HR20-700 years ago. I think it's one of those low priority bugs that have been there since day one.

    I see it on the HR20-700 often, but that is the only model unit I see it on.

    You know, I'm not sure if it was the HR21-100 or the HR24-500. Both are in the same room hooked to the same system.
