    this is obviously still a problem, and DTV is still broadcasting a screen with music so no lost signal made the machine delete it, what gives?

    Now I just tried to play it after resetting it, still blank screen, the latest episode. This is the first time this has ever happened to me though I have read about it happening to others, usually I have been able to just push the 30 second FF button and that kick starts it. So I tried to delete, froze it again, have to reset it again. This machine is officially a POS.

    Must be your cables.

    Or you need to reformat your hard drive.

    Or you've just set it up wrong.

    Nope, cables don't make it not record a show and freeze up when you are trying to delete, automaticaly cancel sports subscription recordings, lose the 119/110 for hours and days at a time when I never had this problem before (So I should say the whole set up with the Ka/Ku dish to be more accurate which may include the cables), etc, the problems go on and on. I didn;t set it up, that's DTV's job, and whatever lameo excuse they and their apologists keep making that they don;t install is laughable, the dudes are sent by them, hired by them and wear their uniforms, they are them as far as the consumer, me, is concerned, and as far as the law is concerned too. That's why they all of a sudden started acting like a sleazy cell phone company asking for a 2 year commitment from valued customers, they knew this was potential crap, no other reason. Now on reformatting, you may be right about the show recordings and feeze ups, but i've had this thing for just a few months, it's a DVR where I record a lot of shows, if I have tore fromat it every few months and lose my shows, it's a piece of crap.

    You're obviously just a tivo-lover unwilling to change.

    They never said it'd be perfect.


    You're just being too harsh.

    And I really want to know is what is the current status on the issues with the auto deletions and cancellations on the sports subscriptions, I thought they were fixed and i did not mean to get into an argument with one of the cult lovers over me daring to call this box a bad name over it's well documented poor performance, heaven forbid a consumer be ticked off.
