Mine has become excruciatingly slow too. You are not alone. Most annoying is if I delete something from the playlist it is now a multistep process of deleting (slow) and then refreshing (slow). Channel changing...slow. Display guide...slow.

I have a feeling that the only thing fast on here are things you pay for, like VOD!:(


VOD is slow too I rented a movie...never again Apple TV from now on for me HR24-100 here.....:lol:

I have this with my HR24-500 occasionally, and have since it replaced my dying HR20-700 last September. Most of the time it's nicely responsive, but sometimes it slows to a crawl. Remote (RF mode) will take spells where key presses are not registered (DTV light doesn't blink on front panel), then sometimes it gets super-sensitive making it nearly impossible to register a single keypress (makes it lots of fun selecting a program to view from the play list, select a program from the guide, or enter a channel number directly). Some times when deleting a program it goes through the two-slow-step process described above, but most of the time it only takes a second or two. Slow downs seem to be more frequent in the late evening which makes me wonder if the system is just busy doing some sort of background maintenance.

All if this is without getting the update - still running 0x62c installed 12/20/12.


Try resetting the receiver through the menu settings. After any update, I reset the receiver. Seems to help.

I don't have the new 0x66a software yet, but I don't want it to come at a time early in the morning when I am recording something. Is it safe to force the 0x66a download at my chosen time? If so, how do I do it? Thanks.

If your account isn't authorized to get it yet then you can't force it. It won't download while you are recording, it will delay it until nothing is going on.

Just found this thread.

My HR24-200 has become very slow too, everything you mentioned is also happening to mine.

My HR20-700 is actually faster than the 24. :eek2:

The speed of my HR24-500s is still about the same (not fast enough but about typical since the HDGUI update) but I have had the ‘jump-to-the-end’ problem 3 or 4 times now. I just hit FF and bam – jumps to the end…

Old problem back again!

Apparently the ‘testers’ didn’t catch these troubles? I’d think it had something to do with restarting every week but I restart the HR24 that has had the ‘jump-to-the-end’ issue every Sunday to keep it from freaking out so it is never running longer than a week without a reboot.

I wished that worked for me. I've done a menu reset 5 or 6 times, and a RBR once or twice. It didn't make a difference. The response has gradually improved some of the time, where I can tune a channel in 5 seconds. But most of the time, it's still a 30-60 second wait. Pressing Guide will usually get no data for a full minute. Then it fills in and I can navigate the guide screen normally. Same with quick tune. Takes forever to pop up, but then I can move around the selections normally. There is no buffering of extra commands. If I press the up arrow 5 times in a row, when it finally responds, I'm on the center selection of quick tune. The worst thing though is that 60 seconds of a completely blank screen, waiting for the receiver to tune the channel. This is now only on my HR24; my HR21 that got the update no longer behaves this way.

It's been two weeks and I still don't have 0x66a. I want it so bad because maybe it fixes the "doubling" and "auto-SELECT" problem that both my HR23 and HR24 have. By that I mean that oftentimes when I press a button on the remote control. the DVR will do what I want it to do twice. For example I press the scroll button and it scrolls two pages instead of just one. The auto-SELECT means that when, for example, I am setting a manual recording and the highlight is hovering over a certain choice like RECORD, the DVR will automatically SELECT that choice (RECORD) by itself even though I didn't press SELECT at all. The The DVR is set to record something I don't want. Very consternating. Thanks.

The funny thing about this release is that it was BLAZING fast on my two HR21s for the first few days. Then it turned into one of the worst releases I have ever had with delayed actions, 30 sec skip problems, etc.

I just noticed this morning that 0x66c was downloaded last night on both of my boxes. Hopefully it is better.

66a does not fix what you call the "doubling" problem. I still have the problem on both of my HR21s.

I received 66c early this morning. Maybe they fixed the "doubling" problem this time.

In the very first post.
Game Lounge icon is gone, Far In Advance Search, Watch Now off the top of my head.


0x66C on HR24-100, went to watch a recording this evening and got a black screen. Tried to watch another recording and got a black screen. Live TV was fine. Tried to play something back from the HR24-200 and also got a black screen. No OSD, and it acted like it was playing, I could fast forward and everything, but a black screen with no audio. A menu reset fixed it. This is not the first time I've had this receiver do this, but previously I think I was on a CE build.

Tried playing back Bones on local Fox (HD) recorded on both receivers, stream Continuum on SyFy from HR24-200, and Enlightened recorded on HR24-100.

SENDREPORT key 20130226-F4B Central Time, received this 2/21 2:47am.
