Who has seen this (the screen saver moving at about 3 times normal speed)? Yikes! Harmless enough, we presume.

 

I saw it once a few weeks ago, but since "66" I see it a lot. Maybe "6B" will fix that, and maybe that is what they mean by "stability fix".

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

Not seen it on my HR24, although, I must admit that I never see the screen saver at all. :D


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

I saw it, just once.  Hasn't happened again.  I thnk I was changing something in the setup menu when it occurred, but I don't remember what.

 

It was a bit scary!  That DVR has 200 hrs of unwatched programming on it that I don't want to lose.

Did you happen to spill a soda or cup of coffee on it? I hear the receivers aren't supposed to be given caffeine. :grin:

I have seen this on an HR20-700 years ago.  I think it's one of those low priority bugs that have been there since day one.

I see it on the HR20-700 often, but that is the only model unit I see it on.

You know, I'm not sure if it was the HR21-100 or the HR24-500. Both are in the same room hooked to the same system.
