Same here on both my boxes. In addition, the recorded movie we were watching went to grey screen with no audio.

Me too. Yet another goof up from D* I'm guessing. This is getting really old.

Yeah, same in Knoxville: A momentary blip in video/audio followed by "To Be Announced" across the guide.

Yep, same here, and my todo list is empty. When I look in my history, scheduled recordings in the future say cancelled due to an unexpected error (46). As usual though, my HR10-250 is just fine. :rolleyes:

reset worked for me - I was watching - pic turned black and no sound - as well as recording, which stopped. A reboot fixed both problems. Off to reboot other machines!

if this goes like past guide data glitches then in 1 to 3 hours we will be getting a new NR to fix whatever they added to the guide data to cause this.
