HDMI handshake issues that a lot of people are/were having.

HDCP is something different and isn't an "issue", it's supposed to happen. Certain providers, like HBO, are forcing HDCP. You won't be able to watch their content via any other output (component, composite, S-Video) while HDMI is hooked up if the HDMI device is not on.

For example say you have TV A hooked up via HDMI and TV B hooked up via component. You won't be able to watch HBO, or other providers forcing HDCP, on TV B with TV A turned off.


What about those of us who have older HDTV with no HDMI connections. How are we supposed to watch HBO etc.?

My HR24 in the MBR never had an issue with HMDI before the release, after the release, when hitting the power button, I don't get an HDMI signal. I have had to turn off the power save feature in settings.

If you have no HDMI connections, then you should have no problem watching HBO, etc. the same way you always have. The protection scheme only causes problems when you have an HDMI connection.

Then you don't have to worry about HDCP. It only looks for HDCP when HDMI is being used.

Just wanted to update on my earlier post. Later in the day, the sound worked fine without any reboot. It was just a problem for a few hours in the morning. Go figure?

I talked with DirecTV this morning about issues with my HR21/700. It freezes during live TV watching and recording playback. It also sometimes resets itself. I have it connected using HDMI cables and have a Yamaha receiver for a Bose surround system. DirecTV wants to send a tech out to check out my system. I have run all the system diagonistics on the system and it passes everything. Is there a way to see if this is my system or a software issues?

The versions are in hexadecimal so 0x5D2 would be higher.

With the symptoms described with my HR21/700 receiver, do I have a hardware or a software issue?

Freezing and resetting is mostly likely hardware.

HDMI handshake issue temporally resolved on my HR20-100 in the morning, but then reverted back to being an issue later in the day.

DIRECTV doesn't release dates, past experience tells us it could take a couple weeks.

So with 05D2 I've had a couple things happen that I have not noticed before.

One random lockup - required unplugging power which did a reset.

Initial audio drop - My Yamaha A3000 AVR would lose sound if it didn't have the DTV HR22 selected when previously turning it off. I had to select the HR22 input, then power off the Yamaha and power it back on which then allowed the audio to work OK.

I don't remember having either of those problems before but at least that dreaded HDMI resolution glitch is fixed (for now at least.)

05D2 on day three and it seems to have fixed the laggy playlist and post delete issues from my old (Feb.) 059E. One funny issue - on cold start, first channel input from keypad won't take - good thereafter.

I have two HR21-700s and both are working well with version 5d2. Looks like your having a hardware issue to me.

I just received a new HR24-500 for free today and swapped out my old slowly going HR22-100. Took advantage of free receiver update. I was wondering how long does it take for the software to update? I cannot believe the speed of the 24! Outrageously fast!

Never used anything of the DTV DVRs except the HR34 and the slower HR24. If you think that the HR24 is fast, you should try an original Series 3 TiVo. Zero delay. HR34 takes two to three seconds to respond, HR24 takes four to five seconds to respond.

A known fact on the internet, is if your page takes three seconds to load, it will be closed before it opens. Couldn't the HRs be at least as fast as the back and forth over hundreds and thousands of miles as the internet?

Thank you for this info, I have been looking all over as to why this is happening. My Slingplayer was getting the error while the TV was off.

I do not have the 5d2 software, I am still on 0x5cd.

I still believe it is a software rather than a hardware issue.

Been on 0x5D2 for a few days now on an HR20, an HR22, and an HR23.

It seems that the 720p bug and handshake issues are resolved.

On the other hand, there is an old Turkish proverb:

Man who sleeps on floor does not fall out of bed.

My daughter, who's home watching tv, says that she is hearing intermittent drops of audio lasting less than a second each.


I have not heard any dropouts, myself.

Well now the newest downgrade is messing up whole home. The HR24 sees the HR34. HR34 does not see HR24, so I reset HR34. It sees the HR24, watch a show from the HR24, go to delete it at the end and HR34 disconnects from HR24 list. Reset HR34, still does not see HR24. So reset the HR 24. Still no connection to the HR24 on the HR34.

I give up on these POS boxes. Tomorrow the DirecTiVos go back on line. HD is wonderful but these boxes are totally frustrating on a daily basis. Look for a sale on some owned boxes with 2T drives.
