At first, the DVR wouldn't respond to the remote or even pressing the power button on the receiver. Now it seems I can wait 30 second to a minute and it starts playing again. Or if you if you use the remote, it responds after the video starts playing again. From reading prior posts, I started with doing the tests that you can access from a reset. Ran each test twice and had the following results:
Test name / Test1 / Test2
1) File System Verification / Fail 0x70 / Fail 0x70
2) Smart Short Test / Passed / Passed
3) Smart Long Test / Passed / Passed
4) Surface Test / Error 70 / Passed
After all testing done and the DVR finished booting, it was on a local HD channel and the picture was pixilating a bit. Swapped to the other tuner and back, then it seemed to clear up. Later that evening, it froze again a couple times while watching a game on MSG HD. So I was going to try the reboot and hold down the record and down arrow buttons on the front panel, but read it might not work any longer. Not to mention if it did, it can take 4 hours or more, so I didn't try it.
To make it more interesting, after the game was over , I was watching a recording on my other HR22 and during that recording from one of our local HD stations, it had a spot where it froze as well. Only for a few seconds, then the recording continued. When I rewind, same freeze. So I then checked my satellite signals on the HR22 that is giving me the most trouble and have attached them.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
