I've seen threads on this issue with Joey's, but on one of my two Hopper w/sling, every couple of days I turn it on, see the Hopper screen saver, hit the DVR button - and - blank screen. It still records fine during these episodes, but requires a reboot to get the screen back, then works fine for a day or two until the next black screen episode. anyone else have this issue? This is new over the last month or so. Before I had the bug where it wouldn't record anything until you rebooted - that was every couple of weeks for maybe six months, eventually it went away (with a sw update I reckon). Hoping the same thing happens here.
