The record light on our HR24 is out. Shows still record. Any solution?
Ignore it? Not to be smart, but that's what I'd do- I pay no attention to the lights now anyway.
It will likely come back at the next reboot
I know some folks that would love to have this "feature"
Have you tried resetting the Receiver?
They should get some LightDims.
Or a piece of electrical tape.
Resetting the HDDVR brought the record light back. Thanks for the help.
Lightdims or use the buttons on the front of the DVR to adjust them down in brightness. Not really hard...
That good for all of the front LEDs except the rceord one.
it does not bother me, as it does to "some folks"
I am well aware of the light dims and the front button presses to dim the LEDs. it was more like a joke....
I have light dims on all kinds of stuff, I love those things. We watch movies in the dark, so any led can be annoying as heck.
The record light never bothered me until I got my HR34. That sucker is like a laser. I ended up putting two on.
Interesting! I just realized I was brainwashed by my parents that watching TV in a dark room was bad for the eyes. Maybe they just didn't want me making out with my GF then... Is there- was there- any medical advice to that effect?
As we expected. My best guess would be that whatever turns on the record light runs as a service; if a service spontaneously aborts, whatever it does will not work until reset during the reboot. Usually nothing else is affected, although when one service quits it could be due to an event that also causes other things to go screwy.
I chalk it up the to rumor that is don't swim within 30 mins of eating... People have been watching at theaters in the dark for years, we are still doing ok!
I actually thought it was reading in the dark was bad for your eyes.
30 minutes wait before swimming..... NO!!!! It should be 60..... Now, eating four hotdogs, three ice cream cones, two large fries and onion rings on a 98 degree day, with water ca. 70, a wait is a good idea.
I was never able to read in the dark till iPads..... :rolling:
Interesting note about movie theaters- seldom are they totally dark. Probably local laws prohibit being lighted only by the screen.
Swimming after a bite to eat is a non point. If you eat 4 hotdogs, etc, then do any exercise you will probably cramp and puke, so it's not swimmings fault.
I do believe there's an actual effect of dropping the external temperature around a body by 30 degrees when it's trying to digest some difficult stuff. But I'm no M.D., nor did I stay at a motel last night.
It can cause strain and a headache, but most doctors think that's all, and that it isn't a major contributor to myopia.
