    Confirming the same VOD behavior as others. I tried d/l'ing a program and as long as the d/l was in progress, I could not play it from the queue or to do list - the PIG would go black and nothing else would happen. The black screen would remain upon exiting to live tv and the live signal could be restored by changing the channel (it didn't matter what type of channel (HD mpeg2, HD mpeg4, OTA, or SD) the box was on while trying to play the VOD in progress. VOD would play upon completion of the d/l.

    When I moved the HR21 into the living room I changed the remote fro RF to IR. I seems like the remote is responding very slow. I'm using a Harmony 880.

    Well it looks like the boys in El Segundo have something to work on. Hopefully a fix sometime next week.

    It looks like my network issues have been resolved. Did a reset defaults on the network setup page on each box. All has been working well since. Something changed somewhere and was giving my network fits.

    Hopefully it'll be firmware version 0x20? because the regular batch of HR21s are seeming to have the same issue with 0x1FE.

    I have another HR21 on 0x1fe and it downloads fine and even allows you to view it before it completes the recording. Have not seen the problem there. I did notice that the ethernet lights on both HR21s are on solid as compared to the HR20s where one only blinks when up or downloading data. One of the these should be solid the other should be lit when data is being transferred.

    Issue: Stuck in 480 after viewing DOD selection.


    I downloaded a "single" from Concert TV on demand. The TV was 720p before watching the video and is now 480p after the video even when going back to live feed. Changing channel did not help, I had to use the "Res" button on the unit to get back to 720.

    The few small video clips i have on my computer are not formatted properly, so I can't play them on any of my HRs.

    I did try some of the other media share options and came up with the following. Jpgs play fine when played by them self, I playing from the folder view. MP3s also play correctly . When I try to do a slide show with jpgs and then use the option to play mp3 audio along with the jpgs, everything goes down the tubes. The audio will play fine, but the screen will be blank. Once this happens, you can't stop the audio or do anything else. When the audio selection is over, the HR21 pops back to the last channel that was viewed, with correct video and audio. The problemis is that it is unreponsive to any key input (light blinks but nothing else), either remote or front panel. This forced an RBR.

    turns out that the rbr got stuck and I had to rbr again to complete the reboot. Upon reboot, I decided to play the 2 VOD programs I had d/l'd. Neither played, just got a black screen in the PIG (guess it's the PIL, but I lkie typing PIG :) ). Not sure if it has anything to do with it, but one had an expiration of 2/10, the other 3/16 - both were d/l'd yesterday the 10th and both played immediately upon completion, just not the second time later that day.

    I deleted the VOD that expired yesterday (the day I d/l'd) and am deleting the other one also. I am going to d/l a new program and see what happens.

    Yes I got it. My Issue is when I playback a recording. After using FFx1 or faster,when you go back to play it skips ahead after a short pause.

    Here's a GUI polishing thing - I noticed this morning that I had a message (not sure when it arrived) so I went to the menu and selected "caller id & messages", the menu then had an option to "edit settings" and several caller id items. It wasn't very intuitive as to how to read the message, I think there needs to be an item to select that says "read messages" or change the "edit settings" item to "messages/settings"

    Not sure if the HR20 is like this or not, but probably is.

    Oh, the message was promoting the upcomming NASCAR HOT PASS free preview.

    A VOD update, the program I d/l'd this morning played after completion. I'll check again this evening.

    I agree with you there. All of us here are pretty smart and it took me a while to find the message in the HR21 also. So, a regular Joe will have a very hard time finding where this message is at. Something there needs to be changed to make it easier to find.

    When the HR21 is left on an XM channel for a few hours, it'll stop playing the audio. Pressing any button will stop the screensaver and bring the audio back. When it comes back, the light ring does it's "playing" animation, where one LED circles all the way around. I've reported this issue in other versions before, but it seems to have gotten worse in this one.

    I hadn't seen your post yet, but I had already added a similar post to the HR20-700 thread, and will be repeating that post here and in the HR20-100 threads...

    Issue: Info Banner and Menu each show I have a new message waiting, but the new message is NOT at the top of the Caller D & Msgs meun.

    Description: There is an envelope icon next to "Caller ID & Msgs" in the Menu and there is an envelope icon in the Info Banner. Selecting "Caller ID & Msgs" in the Menu, I would expect to see an indicator at the top of the menu about the new message, but instead there's an option called "Edit Settings", an option called "Turn Off Notices", and dozens of past caller ID names and numbers. The "new" message, "FREE PREVIEW of NASCAR...." is over 10 presses of PAGE-DOWN away, at the very end of the menu.

    Suggestions: New Messages should be chronologically inserted into the sub-menu in order of receipt. If there are no new calls, then the message "FREE PREVIEW..." should be the top item - it should not be at the end of the menu.

    Also, to be more intuitive, the "Edit Settings" option needs to be changed or updated when there's a new message. It should read "View Messages and Edit Settings" to let the user know that all messages may be viewed in one place.
