    Happened to both my 100 and 700 at the same cited time. No new software versions downloaded to either one.
    In chat, VOS says a guide data download error causes it, and that it last happened in March.

    This is another time when there was a problem with the guide data download which cause the reset and the re-download of the data.
    This has happened before.
    There is nothing wrong, a failsafe was triggered like has happened a couple of times this spring.

    I finally got it to do the reboot after 3 times. I was having a heart attack that my hr20-100 died on the day the started the Hd rollout. Thanks.

    All three of mine (2-100's and 1-700) apparently have restarted. Didn't see it happen, but the blue rings on all 3 are on. I normally keep them off.

    Mine did too, and of course I lost one of my OTA channels because of the reboot

    Reboot also on a HR20-100S
    This unit is a replacement unit for a unit where the modem went bad during the day on Monday, new unit was just installed on 09/26/07.
    Have had local channel mapping troubles since install.
    Due to back ground recording and downloading have yet to be able to reset the receiver myself.
    Lost local single digit channels and other OTA channels are only at 50% where on older unit would of been at 100%...

    Did some background update bring back the single digit OTA bug??

    Yes, I also lost the Channel Categories. Did a soft reset and now they're back.

    OK this has happened before at the exact same time.
    It happens when a failsafe is tripped because of a guide data problem.
    This is the third time this YEAR that I remember it happening.

    Don't worry, there is nothing wrong with your system.


    No need to keep posting here.

    Grr, happened to me too and I also lost the categories. Can't do a soft reboot right now because it's recording stuff, but I guess I'll have to do that tomorrow to get them back if it doesn't fix itself.

    My one HR20-700 rebooted as well. The funny thing is, both of my HR10-250's had their tuners change to channel 201 (at the same time as the HR20 reboot), but they didn't reboot.

    Must have been something in the data stream...

    I would agree with VOS regarding this matter, however my HR20-700 (running 19e) did reboot at approximately the same time as the others reported here. :)
