Phew, I was worried about a hardware issue. I can deal with a reboot from time to time.

and FWIW, I would never say that CID has been (or will be for that matter!) rock solid.

CID had always worked reliably where I live. Until now.

Skip to Tick feature has a confusing 3-4 second lag that prevents the user from comprehending where the tracking actually is, compared to where the tracking display bar is. This issue has existed in the past 3 or so upgrades.

How do you initiate your Skip to Tick?

We are on 7e5 and we're getting the first bad pixellation (again on CBS, again on Amazing Race) since last fall.

 

I guess it's time to call DirecTV and demand a fix or new box.

Occasional pixellation doesn't necessarily equate to a new DVR.

The culprit could be your CBS affiliate. Our local CBS affiliate is notorious for equipment failures and transmission issues.

If you can get your CBS over the air on the TV itself (with an antenna), look at it there. I had this problem for 36 hours where the OTA signal was perfect and the HD-Local fro D* was stroboscopic (unwatchable) or 3 different DVRs. It was a problem between the local and D* which they finally got fixed.

My HR34 got 7e5 OTA overnight Thursday.  Since then, both shows it's recorded (Grimm on NBC and Mythbusters on Discovery) have experienced a serious problem: at a specific point, the picture freezes but the sound keeps going.  (The frozen picture in both instances is perfectly clear, no pixilation).  The recording will play sound-only to the end of the show, but all attempts to trick play past the point where the picture freezes will magically warp back to immediately before the freeze.

 

Incidentally, the problem is with the recording itself; the same symptoms occur when attempting to play it back on my networked HR2xes.

Me too - locked up rock solid last night and had to do a red button reset.

Today, recording of Dan Patrick on Audience channel freezes about 1:30 into recording but audio continues.

Had this a lot last fall, then was fixed.  Appears to be back with this version...

Had the same issue on a couple different shows. Then this last week every time I key in a channel number, all I get is a blank screen until I scroll up or down a channel or two. Finally got around to rebooting the thing and it comes back up with all our recordings missing. Groan. Trying another reboot now.

After the second reboot the recordings were still missing. I was too tired to actually troubleshoot, so i went to bed and in the morning it was back to normal. Kind of annoying that it takes more than the boot up time to really be usable again.

That's why is advisable to do the double reboot- the one that flushes the Guide- just before turning in.

Not familiar with this trick and I actually try to pay attention to such tips.  Still seems like a pretty big bug in the software, since 99% of customers wouldn't know where to even look for such a fix.

For some time now a single restart on mine seems to flush the guide data. All actor info and guide listings a few days out disappear. Takes a day or so before it reappears.

Well, that certainly sounds like a flush! But doesn't the Guide start rebuilding almost immediately, going out a few hours, then a day, then.....? And what DVR?
