    i just got the whole home setup today along with a hr34 and my son got a refurbished hr24 cause he was having problems with his hr22. Anyway my sons hr24 is having problems. I dont even know if I can explain this correctly. Its on a hdtv. If the hr24 is on which it always is and you have the tv on another input like hdmi 2 for his xbox and you would switch it back to the input the hr24 is on you would get a blank screen until you turn the power off on the hr24 and turn it back on then its perfect. And this is every time. I thought it might be the input. So I changed inputs. Same thing on another input. I never ran into this. It is being a pain in the butt and we had the new box for less than 6 hours. Did any of you ever run into this? Or do you know how to fix this?

    This is a total shot in the dark, but is it an HR24-500?

    I'm using different HDMI inputs on my Samsung TV and switching between them is not a problem with the HR24-500. So I'd say that the TV is having a problem with the HDMI handshake to the HR24-500, if that is what you have.
