I can confirm, the issue has been fixed as far as we know.

I ordered a new hr24 to replace my hr10-250 that was constantly rebooting. If I don't need the new hr24 now (the hr10 is hooked to an sd crt tv) is there any problem with just keeping it until I do need it sometime. I know back in the day when i would buy a receiver at Best Buy I was told it had to be authorized within 30 days. Does anyone know if there is still such a policy? I ordered the Hr24 from Dishbuys.com and would have to pay a restocking fee and shipping if I returned it. I have several HD dvr's including an Hr20-700 so I wouldn't mind just keeping the Hr24 for later use.

You can't keep it unactivated. Personally, if you have any HR21-23's, I'd just replace one of them with the 24.

As far as I know, my R10 in the bedroom did not restart last night... but it recorded a full hour of "we know there is a problem" instead of the results of DWTS on ABC

Sigh... if it isn't one thing, it is another

I just received an email from D* stating the problem was fixed yesterday. They are putting a $10 credit on my account.

IF you deactivated the the HR20 and replace it with the HR24 they will not want the HR20 back so you can keep it around as a spare. It will only ever work on your account though, so don't try selling it or anything.. ;). Although,I don't see why you wouldn't just replace the TiVo anyway.

Both of my units just reset independently @ 1720 on 12/26. Hope this isn't starting again!

Unlikely. Haven't seen any other posts, at least not so far. Perhaps you just had a minor power glitch?

I hope I am wrong but it seems now that the holidays are over that directv may be testing again and the issue has returned,

Experienced a reboot on Saturday 01/19/13 around 5:55am

No reboots for nearly 2 months before that.
