BUG REPORT: lots of channel switching causes reboot
Posted 29 January 2004 - 12:46 PM
1. Tune one channel; SD or HD
2. Tune another channel; SD or HD
3. Use recall to bounce back and forth a lot between them
4. After a while, press PIP --> crash
or, after step 3, go to guide, or just tune another station, or even just press recall again --> crash

It has never crashed when I use the guide (or the keypad) to change channels.

Can Mark Lamutt please respond to this thread and let us know if this is a known issue with the 921. I sure hope so and I sure hope a fix is in the works because this is one of the most serious bugs 921 has. I mean If we can't channel surf without frequent crashes the 921 is pretty much worthless.

I've had very similar things happen to me, and most of the time in my case it's been a direct result of changing channels with very fast button presses. I've found that eventually this causes the 921 to become unstable.
I'm passing along all of these messages through the beta channels to prove the point to the developers that this is a big problem.

Lots of channel changing whether in the guide or up/down will cause high instance of crash. Appears to be more of a problem where you change channels between the OTA and sat tuners too. I have no statistics but just have come to the same conclusions as others. The speed of channel changing doesn't appear to cause increase of crashing but many of the signals to change channels go ignored. If I see a channel change result in a very slow response, usually the next signal sent to the receiver will result in a crash.
