Haven't heard of this one on an HR2X, you sure you aren't referring to an HR34?

I have this odd thing Happening tonight. I have the chiefs/chargers game scheduled to record. I am watching it live and the hr24 skips and goes to black screen. Then it starts at the live program after a few seconds. When I go to the recorded list it shows several entries for the same recording two at 6pm one at 6:43 and one at 7:11. Never seen this one before.

If you are breifly losing the signal from the satellite / dish it will make multiple entries for a recording, same as when it rains very hard.

Thanks for responding, but I am not losing reception. It acts like it is changing tuners you know like when it is switching to a scheduled recording. It hasn't happened since the last one in the picture, maybe it was just a hiccup?

Never seen that happen, usually there will a black screen for the duration of the lost signal, but still remains one entry. I have seen mutiple entries, but only due to power loss and after the HR restarts it will resume recording the same show, with a new entry.

HR20-100s 0x628
Report # 20121023-131B (#1), 20121029-2B65 (#2), 20121101-573 (#3)
Issues:
  • Series [early] start time is being ignored.
    Not only is the early start time being ignored, but some recordings are starting several minutes late. Some recordings seem to appear complete (time-wise), yet are tagged Partial
    Besides missing part of the show, this results in a Partial tag that causes the shows to record again, if scheduled, to try to get a complete recording. That ends up wasting disc space...
  • Pandora drop out on digital audio.
    After a song ends in Pandora there is sometimes a digital chirp. Sometimes at a song end, the digital audio drops out and doesn't return until a second or 2 into the next song. (like slow squelch...) Sometimes there is no digital audio output at all (TOSlink or HDMI) until after another song starts. Analog output OK.
  • Pressing [Enter] while watching a program brings up the mini-guide. Pressing [Enter] additional times will not remove the mini-guide, just "bonks"... If this is supposed to be a redundant Blue button, it's broken...
  • Playlist
    • Playlist looses pointer and sort order.
      When viewing recorded show info or watching a recorded program, press stop. DVR returns to Playlist with Please wait... message up. List is resorting to saved setting and jumps to top of the list instead of the show just played.
    • When changing the playlist sort order, the cursor jumps to the top of the list when done.
  • HDCP
    • On SD outputs, HDCP warning is not visible. Only the HD connection warning, "Your TV or it's cables are not HD!" shows for a while, then it's a black screen.
    • When HDMI client device is off or in some cases, input not selected, HDCP turns off all outputs...
  • Music channel, blank screen on SD out.
    Pre HDGUI, when changing from an HD channel to a music channel, the music channel would stay HD and SD out would show the same as HD. Now the SD out shows a blank screen, but the BIG HD warning box, "Your TV or it's cables are not HD!" shows up...
  • (#2) Problems when Parental controls are in use.
    • Won't play local recording, SIGN OFF. Show has no rating. Black screen no audio. No Unlock Now box.
      Unlocked parental control for 4 hours, now plays OK.
    • no SonicTap audio when in VOD, after Unlock Now box is displayed.
    • Parental controls non-functional on VOD channels.
      VOD channels should behave the same as the Guide. It simply blocks the channel completely.
    • SonicTap Info screen takes focus from Unlock Now. This was fixed some time ago, but is now back.
      Info banner blocks access to UNLOCK for parental control. You must exit first, sometimes more than once.
    • Parental control looses Unlock when returning from watching a program in the playlist.

Pressed record on Quantum of Solace on USAHD and it added the on-demand pay per view listing to my playlist not record. Pressed exit a couple of times pressed record again and it recorded USAHD.

Hmmm.....I didn't get this release on any of my boxes.

HR24/200 --0x5d3 7/5/2012
H25/500 -- 0x5d2 8/25/2012
H25/500 -- 0x5d2 8/25/2012

My HR34 gets updates just fine. I did a menu reset on the HR24 this morning but still nothing.

Is there something I should do to these other boxes to force updates?

Just wait for the 628 release, they will push it to your box when they want you to have it. There are too many risks involved to get it a few days or weeks early.

So you think it's just a slow rollout? I guess because I've always gotten the HR34 updates on the first day they were announced, I thought that's how it worked for all of these. But I suppose there are a "few more" of these other boxes out there than there are HR34's, huh? ;)

Exactly. There are a very large number of boxes involved, especially since we're talking about pretty much all HD boxes, whether DVRs or receivers.

Just received this release on my HR22. The one thing I noticed is that the resolution was stuck on 480i even though my settings show all resolutions (native off). I had to manually change it to 1080. I have never had to do this with previous releases.

Got the update early morning yesterday on three boxes (HR24/500 & two HR22/100's). The HR24/500 seemed really slow at first but seems OK today. One of the HR22/100's wouldn't display all of the guide or to do list when turned on after the update. A restart corrected the problem.
