Baring that, I'd re-download the software. Somehow it got corrupted. Do you know how to force a software download?

If you haven't done a RBR, try that first. If you still have the problem after a RBR, then I'd try new software.
To start that process, do another RBR. After you do the RBR, the moment you either get the blue screen on your TV, or the blue lights come on your DVR, press 0-2-4-6-8 on your remote. Do it deliberately. Do it once.
If everything happens right, you'll soon see a notification on your TV that the DVR is downloading the software again.
If you don't see that in a minute or so, immediately do another RBR and try again. It might take you a few attempts to force your DVR to re-download its software.

Just because the software isn't available 24/7 doesn't mean that your DVR firmware isn't corrupted. It certainly doesn't mean that it is either.
Well what's wrong with my DVR? Why's it failing to record shows properly?
Did the reset not fix the problem???
If not, you need to contact DIRECTV and tell them what's going on. In the interim, you need to make your peace with the recordings already on the DVR because they'll be gone if you have to replace the DVR.

I didn't know this.
You didn't do anything wrong, Hx2x FW is not available 24/7 anymore.
When is it available?

Is this on a SWM system?
Posted 01 October 2012 - 06:43 PM
I only have 1 tuner. Yes it's a SWM.
I mean on the two tuners on that box. If its always the same tuner, I'd lean towards hardware. If its always the background tuner, no matter which tuner that happens to be, then maybe software.

To me you should actually have problems with live TV on one of the tuners, but it does seem like an odd issue so who knows.

This morning Red H says 0x05d2 is available for the OP's DVR. That looks pretty normal to me. If you are reading this, Coca Cola Kid, Red H says it's there for the downloading. I'd try right now.
