While looking for upcoming UEFA games I tuned to channel 491 and received notification of an "incompatible video signal" (a warning I never had seen in my 18 years with DirecTV). The receiver subsequently would not respond to commands from the remote. I accomplished an RBR followed by a power-down; after both reboots the same situation prevailed. I only could watch programming on my HR24-100 by changing the channel from 491 via an arrow key on the front of the box, after which the remote worked properly.


Anyone else encounter this problem and understand what might have caused it? Thanks!

I've gotten a similar message on an older receiver with an older TV.  I never get it on my Genies or on newer TVs.


"But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, is their monument today, and for aye." "This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave."

Sounds like your HR24 is on a resolution that your TV does not "like"

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.
