I would have voted on this poll but my choice is not listed.

I would have said RBR every1 or 2 months.

My HR20 has been pretty stable since I purchased it in September 2006.

I selected none. I have two boxes. One box since October, the other since December. Between the two of them I've had 3 RBRs, and the last one was in December.

All three resets were due to the box not accepting commands from the remote or manually.


My experience is virtually the same as ChroimaTick's :
selected none. I have two boxes. One box since Sept, the other 6 weeks. Between the two of them I've had maybe 6 RBRs, and the last one was 2 weeks ago.

All resets were due to the box not accepting commands from the remote or manually, refered to as the BSD bug I believe.

Without knowing what release you're asking about, the question could be answered many ways. I answered 0 because I haven't had to RBR since 12A. Before 12A is was once a week (basically once during each early release when I hit the BSB on ESPN HD). None on 128 because I tuned to D* HD Local and none on 12A despite tuning to ESPN HD before going to Standby.

I couldn't really find an option. When I first got the HR20 in October I had to reset it a couple of times due to lockups where the remote wouldn't respond. The last time I did it was the download before 0x12a. The HR20 was just acting goofy after the download and has been working fine ever since the reset


I think yours is effectively "none" for the purposes of this informal poll. I was looking for people with real issues. "Once in a blue moon" is effectively "none at all" IMHO.

Thanks!

I was talking about in general since you have had the box. Is it constantly once a week? Several times a week every time you get the verticle stretch issue that was recently raised?

And... 12a has been out less than a week. I do not think we know yet how this version will shake out. Do we? So, sounds like "once a week" to me :D

Anyway thanks for voting!
