    I just passed 1 month for DirecTV and since last week, changing channels has become very slow. Is this normal? I've tried both remotes (Harmony/DirecTV) and still slow. I have HD but no DVR, all my channels react the same way.....using channel number, last 4, last channel, etc. What will usually happen is i press the channel, then it will delay for 10-15 seconds, then the screen will go black for about 10-15 seconds, then it will be fine. Never had this problem on TWC, it was instant. Any ideas?

    No, resetting will not mess up your H25 but it may solve your problem.

    I don't have any issues.....it's just that the remote seems to be a little slower than before. I thought since i'm only using 1 remote. no DVR, no BluRay, etc.that it would be a little faster.

    WOW you really should learn to read, maybe even learn to research .H25 is a HD NON DVR.

    "Solve" is an interesting choice of words.
    When I had DirecTV, a reboot would always "solve" the problem, until it began to occur again.
    It was always my theory that the software suffered from memory leaks. Similar to older Windows-based PCs, they needed to be rebooted in order to clear out the RAM and allow them to perform better.

    A true solution would address the root cause of the problem.

    Sure, but in the mean time, an occasional reboot is hardly a hardship. I sometimes clear the Guide just because, too.

    Do Dish receiver auto-reboot daily, or is that a myth, or limited to some receivers?

    I think even the Hopper does this. It is skipped sometimes if it's in use.

    I agree, and with all the so called Directv Lookie Loo's around the Forums why are these issues still going on to this day.

    Hire some new software programmers for crying out loud!

    How much have you used an H25? Generally, they are quite fast.

    I guess since DISH has programmers that are so much more advanced then DIRECTV, they did this very technical programming to solve their memory leaks. Create a scheduler to automatically reboot every evening. :rolleyes:
