VIP 722 very slow, skipping, not responding
Posted 28 July 2010 - 07:34 AM
Most of the problems comes when I'm recording two shows at once and trying to watch a third on the DVR. The menu's will move very slowly, if you press a button too many times, it will eventually "catch up" and move through a bunch of screens.
Playback is jerky, sometimes in slow motion even though I'm in play. If I watch a delayed event, it will sometimes skip ahead to LIVE even though I'm at the beginning of the show.
I would assume the hard drive is failing. If that is the case, I realize I can call support and maybe get a new dvr sent out....or I can add a external hdd and transfer my shows (I'm about 80% full anyway).
I've disconnected power and re-booted. Any other suggestions?

I'll post the fix if I get one.

Also ... heat can make this much worse. I now have a laptop cooling pad/fan both under and on top of my 722. That seems to have helped a lot of the flaky problems! One of them quit working a month ago, and I noticed the problems came back.
One, or both, of those might help you some.

I'll try the reset's first, although it has reset itself a couple times after freezing up and didn't help. Like I said I only notice the problem while recording, lately if I try to watch a delayed show that is being recorded, it kicks me up to LIVE.
I am in the 20HR range for HD, so that could be an issue also, and I'll take a look at the heat issue too.

Thanks for all the tips.

And don't get me started on the randomness of which programs have their
name blocked, it could be a scooby doo episode and for some reason it shows as "locked event", but that is another problem....

-recording two shows at the same time
-the program being viewed is a PPV
-and the pause button is pressed
Then when you resume watching the video will stall and go into slomo. The video will skip back/forth from slomo to normal with many missing frames. Only way to resolve is abort recording and go live.
