I have a HR44/500 with 0x797 and never had any freezing until yesterday. I had two instances of the screen turning all one color and freezing for about 10 seconds and then started playing again. Then later the picture would freeze for a few seconds and then start playing again. The last time it froze it didn't ever start playing again and would not respond to the remote so I did a red button restart.

 

So far it has not frozen since the restart.

I have an HR34/700 (internal) and I am noticing freezing issues occasionally while watching live tv.  It can be fixed by changing the channel a few times.  It seems to subsite if I delete some content from my DVR, so it leads me to believe that I've got some bad sectors on my DVR HDD.

Here’s to the crazy ones.

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

Yep and VOD seem to be really slow again downloading.

I called Directv and they said they would have another rep call me back to make service call and they never called back. Nice right! $200 a month and thats what you get.
