I'm sure there is some obvious reason for it but I just got an HD DVR last week and now when I press Select to tune to a specific channel it gives me the 'dunn' type of sound. Its not a beep, but the deeper pitch feedback. I've never had this on any of my other receivers.

I could just reset the receiver but I'm recording something.

Thanks, I figured it was a dumb question.

The weird thing is that I've been using it since last Saturday and it wasn't happening. Then I used it tonight and it started. Threw me off as to why it would start now.

It only makes that sound if you push a button out of context, sort of like Windows makes a little sound for each keystroke if you are trying to type but have not yet clicked in a field that accepts keyboard input. Play back a show and press FF 3 times, no sound. Press it a 4th time and it is trying to tell you that there are only 3 FF speeds, by making that sound. Its one of many legacy Tivo ripoffs, err... (ahem!) tributes.

It's being polite rather than yelling at you that you can't do that. Maybe they should change the sound to the sound of someone clearing their throat.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.
