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?

Went upstairs again after dinner, and the SAME results as described above... several button presses to get anything to work... and then AFTER my first fast forward and back to playing, the receiver acted like it had finally "woken up" and would work properly... every button press produced a result, after only a short delay

 

Has anyone seen a symptom like that before?

 

I'm just about ready to call DTV and ask about the cost of upgrading this one HR23 to an HR24 which is, from what I have read, a lot faster than an HR23

I recently had that problem with my HR24 in the Den. It was the TV warming up and sending out IR signals that was overriding the remote signals.

I cut a piece of a cardboard box about 12" square ( Edit: I am now looking at the cardboard and I had trimmed it so it was only 4" front to back and taped it to the top of the receiver ) and laid it on top of the HR24 and let it hang over the front of the DTV receiver about 2 inches like the eves of your house. It now blocks the signals from the TV and the startup delay ( it was 55 seconds each time ) is now gone completely.

Make sure that the card board is not  covering and cooling vents.

>TV warming up and sending out IR signals

 

I don't think that applies in my case... dedicated theater with a ceiling mount Sony projector which is, as far as I know, completely passive

 

Even if the Sony projector is not passive, this is a 6+ year old install and the problems I am having are recent... so I think "something" is going bad inside the HR23... I just don't know what !!!

 

I looked at the DTV page and there is no way to order an HR24, so I am now thinking about a place like Weeknees

I would suggest a service call - on a 6+ year install (perhaps) the installer after checking out your system can swap it with a HR24 he should have one on his truck- Just a thought a service call is $50 vrs $199 weekneens price  however it's your choice

If it is only not working for the first few seconds and is fine after that, I would wait and see if it dies and let DTV replace it and not spend any money.

Remember, mine that had the slowness is an HR24.

The next time we go upstairs to watch last night's Olympics, I'm going to press the front panel buttons instead of using the remote to see what happens

 

IF the HR23 responds correctly, I will conclude that "something" in the IR receiver is going bad

 

Right now, with a few movies and a TV series that we haven't completed, I don't want to replace "now" since we would lose the recordings... of course, if the unit simply fails I won't have a choice

 

Oh well... thanks everyone for the help and ideas... I think I'm stuck with this partly functioning HR23 for awhile

Front panel buttons work perfectly... remote control is still inconsistent

 

Since our house is for sale (start building new/last/retirement house as soon as we sell this one) I will go with a comment I read in another message thread about the "mover's connection" offering an upgrade at the same time... so when we move and I have the new dish mounted, I will ask the installer about giving him my "going bad" HR23 for an HR24 (I've been DTV since 1995, so signing up for another 2 years to get a free HR24 is no big deal)

Nice of you not to care, however replacing a defective box carries no commitment 


Here’s to the crazy ones.

They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

The oldest trick in the book that I always due is, change channels rapidly using the Ch up/down button to "wake up " your receiver,  then it will respond much better that way,   another trick I do is scroll through the guide up/down in fast motion,   if you have scroll effects off,   then also using the number pad to change channels, also in quick motion, any random numbers will do if the channel number exist of course,  It will work much better,  but don't count on it as permanent solution,   It'll work then might slow again, especially when you don't do a lot of button pressing.
