I have noticed my HR21 will freeze the picture for a few seconds when I start FF, but if I just bear with it, the picture does start to update.  While the picture is frozen, the show is FF, I'm just not seeing it.

 

I think the HDD is going out (slowly) and I am not too worried as I really want an excuse to get a 44.

 

 

As for the OPs, I think we need some more detail: does it do it all the time, if he waits, does it come out of it, what model of DVR, etc.

I have the HR24-200 and i just got off the phone with Directv and they are sending a new DVR out.  One thing i did notice was, if i watched shows recorded on this HD/DVR, it works fine.So it looks like any shows recorded on the Genie upstairs are freezing when i fast forward them. Anyone have any ideas?

First thing to try is resetting ALL of your DVRs and Receivers. 


HD DVRs: HR34-700; HR24-500; (2) HR20-700 + WD eSATA 1TB drive/Antec MX1 case; HR21-700; HR21-200 w/AM21
Receivers: H25-500 HD Receiver; H21-100 HD Receiver
Mobile Devices: Nomad

Doesn't he have to reset the Genie first?  I don't have one and I'm curious.  I think I read something about having to reset them first.

I have restarted everything.The client upstairs works fine.The Genie works fine.But the HD/DVR downstairs drives me nuts. Every time you hit the fast forward button to progress up to the speed number4 it freezes.
