    i do not have a full hard drive
    and other menus still work as they used to
    but when i want to skip or restore a program in the timer menu
    it takes the box almost a minute to come back to working order

    this is when i skip a program or restore one

    i have done this numerous times before but now it is very annoying

    any help would be appreciated

    another problem came up tonight and i am wondering if this is a combined issue



    recordings on tv-2 (the baseball game tonight) kept restarting after 1 to 2 minutes

    when i went in there to use remote, everything was sluggish

    i need to hard reboot this thing but after my recordings tonight i guess

    i have 4.45

    I would definitely try a reboot. Sounds like something might be starving the CPU. Would be interested if the problem does not go away after a reboot.

    ok so did a couple of hard reboots and cleaned some stuff up on the hard drive


    still having the long delay problem

    i timed it today and it took over a minute from once i pushed the skip button in the timer menu, to changed to restore

    something is not right


    the second problem however has not come back

    k strike that it came back

    it seems to only do during the mlb playoffs

    there are over 20 one minute segments


    go figure

    here are some screen shots

    Something is definitely not right. Take a look at your diagnostics. Does any counters stand out? What is your mini-watchdog at. Something is odd here. Also look at your Info screen and see if it indicates any issues.

    here are the counters

    1) authorized services 871
    2) visible services 773
    3) mini watchdog 0
    4) lastest watchdog type 4
    5) kernel panic 0
    6) os monitor wd 0:46
    7)ac pw/hw wd 1

    the info screen ?

    as in pressing menu twice?
    i can take a screen shot if that would help?



    i did recently plug in external hard drive but have not done anything with it
    or have i activated it with that ridiculous fee

    should i unplug it?

    Yes unplug the EHD. IT should not effect it but it should definitely need to ruled out. Hmmmm the os monitor wd looks a bit odd to me but I can't remember what is normal.

    Not the menu menu screen. There is a Screen that shows the Green squares when you have good signal and shows the PHone line connect etc. Page through the info and see if it shows anything.

    Well lets first rule out the EHD causing something to go amuck.

    still nothing

    i think it is a timer conflict and the processer is running around in circles trying to fix the problem but doesnt know to

    i do have over 80 timers but still...

    ive had max before without this problem

    the restore/ skip problem is bearable

    the 1 minute segmnet stuff is unacceptable

    and if i have to pay for a servcie call

    there is no telling what is going to happen

    What's your signal strength for the Sat/TP KTVI is on (118/18)? I saw similar behavior (multiple 1-minute recordings and a general sluggishness to the UI) when I was recording something on 61.5 when one of the transponders had marginal signal strength.
