I too have been effected as Hotelone with the 66a and 66c updates. Literally on the day the update was applied to both of my HR24-100s I started experiencing the delays/freezes from the remotes as well as the front panel of the DVR itself. There are many other posts on the DTV forums and others that match this behavior and fall in line with the dates that the recent updates were authorized for different models.
Also, like Hotelone, I forced 62c on both of my DVRs via RBR, 02468. On both DVRs the issues were resolved with the 62c update being applied. There is absolutely no doubt that this is an update issue. But like Hotelone, with 62c being reapplied, my series manager was wiped. I had to recreate about 40 of them on each DVR last night. BTW, I do not use external drives at all.
Unfortunately, overnight my DVRs have reverted to 66c again (just last night). Since I only discovered this right before I went to work this morning, I have not used them enough to say if the issues have come back. I will post on that later tonight. Luckily the 66c update didn't wipe my series manager again.
I do understand also that this has obviously not
effected the majority of the DVRs out there. Unfortunately for me, it effected both of mine. Which kinda makes me wonder if it is an issue with certain 'lots' of DVRs. Since I have the issue on both of mine, and since both of mine were installed at the same time, it is likely that they were assembled at the same time and have absolutely identical chip sets etc in the build. I work for a tech company that makes memory cards, SSD hard drives etc and I can tell you that often the build of a certain device can vary a small amount within the same model number device. Just wondering out loud....
At any rate, I certainly hope DTV can figure this out ASAP as I am rapidly loosing my hair (even faster than normal). :-)
