My HR-20 has the same 2 issues, which weren't there before the update: record from Other Showings doesn't work, & Recent Searches are deleted if you click on them.

When looking at "Other Showings" for the following you listed:


Pawn Stars 76 TV Airings | 11 VOD

How I Met Your Mother 166 TV Airings | 4 VOD

Two and Half Men 100 TV Airings | 5 VOD


I guess it varies based on your local affiliates (for syndication etc.) for How I Met Your Mother and Two and Half Men. I do see listings from the DNS channels (389-399 channel range) included which I believe is an error/bug as they are grayed out as there channels I do not get; I do not think its normal operation for those to be appearing to be honest. 


I think your numbers are WAY off. I'll check my box for the actual numbers when I get home tonight and report them. But I can tell you for a fact that my phone is showing ~115 airings of pawn stars for the next 2 weeks and thats HD only. That'll be 230 eps counting the SD versions, but I'll report back later tonight with the actual numbers.

As promised:


Pawn Stars = 166 airings + 15 VOD

Two & Half Men = 168 airings + 11 VOD

How I Met Your Mother = 312 airings + 4 VOD


Scrolling through a list with 168 items is a complete CF.

Scrolling through a list with 312 items is just about absolutely useless.


and just for fun... FRIENDS = 392 airings.

I noticed something new.  My HR21s both do this NOW, but never before.  If I go to "smart search", and select "recent searches", and then select OK on a previous search string to see what may be showing, when I press BACK, that search string has now been deleted from the previous searches list.  The searches should remain until I specifically delete them.  Has anyone else seen this?  It doesn't do this every time, but form a small sample, I'd say it was over 75% of the time.

Yes, this is happening to me. All my old searches have disappeared on all 3 of my DVRs.

HR23-700 with 0x7eb - I don't know if this is a receiver problem, or a software problem, so will post and see what someone says


HR23 is connected to TV via HDMI cable... worked last night, turned TV on this morning and had a "no signal" message... switched TV to other HDMI input, and Roku/Netflix works... back to HDMI for the HR23... still no signal


Before calling for TV repair, I did a red button reset on the HR23... and HDMI signal now goes to TV


Has anyone else seen this problem with the 0x7eb software OR the same problem with the HR23 receiver?

This update on the HR24 wiped my Quick Tune selections and also messed with my Video settings (reset to 4:3).

It took a few iterations to get quick tune to use HD versions of the channels.


I also had to re-do the OTA set up.


I haven't checked the HR23.

Update on the HR23: Quick tune entries were intact.

Ever since my H24-700s were updated to 0x07E7 one or two of them go black at a random time each day. There are no issues with signal, no issues with power, it isn't a hardware problem because it has happened to every one of them at one point or another. Some are connected to a Panasonic, some to a LG, four different models of plasma in all, so it has nothing to do with the TV. Turning the receiver off and on again fixes the issue.


I haven't seen them do it, so I can't be certain it isn't some sort of power saving thing, but this is a commercial account so there should be no power saving - there is no power saving menu available so if it is related to that I don't have any way to disable it. At any rate the problem isn't happening to all of them at once or every day, most of them on a given day are powered on for over 12 hours and even if the channel isn't changed they never enter power saving mode.


All my H20s are fine, they aren't having this issue, it is just the H24s that have suffered from it since the new software downloaded a week ago.


Very annoying, I sure hope the next release comes soon and fixes this problem!!

OMG, got 7EB pushed to my HR24. How did this pass testing? SOOOO BROKEN.


1) "Other Showings" instead of "View Upcoming". Why would I want to see every single possible showing of a show (including syndication, VOD, SD, etc)? "View Upcoming" only showed the same channel. Try to do this on a show with many repeats / channels and this feature is completely unusable (i.e. Pawn Stars)

2) Can't record from "Other Showings" list... well, you can, but its broken and doesn't refresh the screen / show the icon, so you don't know if it actually took it.

3) Half the time the "Other Showings" doesn't update the program description or shows the wrong program description

4) Half the time the guide doesn't update the program description or shows the wrong program description


God I can't wait til my contract is up...

#2 is really annoying for me. I used to hit record all the time in that list, but now, you just have to hope it registered. You can always go to the menu and manage recordings, but I shouldn't have to do that....It used to show the "R" right there on the "upcoming" screen.


The guide in general is much more laggy now.


The wifi app on my GS4 is lightning quick.....my DTV remote should be that way as well....

Found a weird quirk the other night - I deleted a season pass from my list, but it still showed. So I tried again. And again. Eventually it disappeared. Turns out it actually deleted the first time, then deleted other season passes the next two times (even though the original one was the one still showing on the screen). I would guess it's related to the non-refreshing issue when hitting "Record" in the other showings list.

Only found out when a show I had set as a season pass didn't record, and then I realized what must have happened.

This just popped up recently so I suspect it has something to do with a change to Doly Digital transmission since it is on two of my HR24-100 with 7EB.  Just to be "safe" I "reloaded" 7EB this morning on one of them.


I use both WHDMI and HDBaseT remote room connections on these receivers.  Both these technologies and all my devices are "certified and licensed" I believe for all the "keep me from enjoying content while doing little to reduce piracy laws" :)  I have 2 different brands of WHDMI.  I know these devices "have been working" at some point before the past week (ish) as the TVs are in my home office, a guest bedroom, and my workshop.  For each receiver, there is a powered HDMI splitter.


Over the weekend, my workshop demonstrated the problem, this morning I noticed it in my office, and then I tested it in the guest bedroom.


THE PROBLEM - No sound on these three TVs, good picture but TVs connected via an HDMI cable operate as expected.


THE TEMPORARY SOLUTION - After going through all the steps of resetting devices and direct cabling, I determined if I turned OFF Dolby Digital I get sound on the 3 remote TVs.  This is why I believe DTV has changed something in their stream that is preventing Dolb Digital from being "broadcast" on the non-hardwired devices.  I remember something similar happening a few years ago.


Like I said, this has been all working for a LONG time and is only recently (<7 days or so) a problem across 2 DTV receivers (HR24-100), a 2 month old release of the firmware (7EB), 2 technologies (WHDMI and HDBaseT), and multiple brands (IOGEAR and MonoPrice).  Points me smack to something that DTV has recently done with how they present Dolby Digital.
