I have an HR20 with an outboard 2TB HDD.....
Recently it has begun to take a long time for the system to delete a program from the DVR.
The longer the program, the longer the time to delete (a period of time when the screen shows the sections
for information, but there is no text and the system won't respond to commands).
A sports program that is 5 or 6 hours long can render the system in this frozen mode for up to sixty seconds.
This is a fairly recent development...I have had this system running for a few years with out these long delays when deleting.
Is this common? Any ne know how to speed it up like it was before??
