    Have you done a restart of the HR24?

    It sounds like the box is rebooting itself. I'd run drive diagnostics, hitting Select during the bootup self test. You will want to do it when you wont be needing it for a few hours, maybe overnight. Also, in settings, info, what is the temperature reading?

    Something similar happened to me yesterday, unit became unresponsive or slow to respond. Today it seems fine but I noticed there was no guide data past tomorrow. Wondering if maybe we got some bad guide data - that can cause all kinds of problems.
