Just went upstairs and checked... it IS working now... still a "long" delay between pressing a button and the receiver responding, but at least I don't have to press the same button several times for something to happen
Going to watch recorded Olympics later today, and will check again tomorrow to see if the time lag between pressing a button and receiver responding is less
Added 5PM 2/9
This receiver is really "screwy" in what I am observing... just got back downstairs from watching Olympics recorded last night
I had to press the List key several times to get my list of recorded programs to display... then had to press the down arrow several times to get the "focus" to go down my list to my Olympics group... and had to press Select several times to open the group... and, of course, down arrow several times to get "focus" to bottom entry... and finally Select several times to get the program to start playing
Once my selected program WAS playing, the FIRST time I pressed the fast forward key to go through a commercial, everything required several key presses to both start fast forward, and then the Play key to go back to play mode
AFTER that, everything worked properly, with each key press making the receiver respond... almost like the receiver takes a LONG time to wake up and function
All in all, I find this to be very weird and frustrating... and not at all how the identical HR23-700 downstairs operates
Does anyone know if DTV is sending the HR24 as a replacement?
