I'm just not crazy about it as a long-term solution, because I think the older, slower boxes especially need all the help they can get to achieve peak performance, so anything that speeds-up housekeeping functions is a good thing, IMHO.


Now you are Understanding what I am trying to Convey!!!

Try keeping it out of Standby Mode and let's see if that solves the problem and the let's alert Directv about this situation.

I Understand that the older units running on an inadequate CPU without enough RAM can Cause alot of Problems!!!

Especially with Slow Responsiveness to Remote Commands, etc.

Well, Directv needs to let us know that we need to do this to help the inferior units deal with the overloading of tasks that these units were not designed to deal with!!!

But as we know that will never happen!!!

I have stated many many times that the CPU needed to be Upgraded and we needed more RAM and guess what finally happened???

We got the HR24 Series which Addresses the Shortcomings of the other HR2X DVRs and now we have Fast Guides, etc.

Go Back And Read My Posts From The Past and you will see what I recommended and stated would lead to a better DVR!!!

Um, I have NEVER seen any real difference in recording (cause I never have recording issues across my 6 boxes with 200 SLs in total) by leaving the machine on or off.. SO I usually leave them OFF unless I am watching it. Now, please, Back To TOPIC!

My HR24 records the best hockey team in the NHL, the BLACKHAWKS, without any problems.

Yeah. I don't even know where this idea comes from. All of my D* DVRs over the year did fine in standby.

I turn on the DVR, and after 30 sec of gray screen, the orange light comes on andthe game appears in the list.


I had something similar along with numerous hangs when coming out of standby recently. Unplugged the network cable and haven't had a problem a couple weaks. Not a real solution (and maybe just coincidence), but good enough for now....
